Using Search Encrypt will allow you to search the web with more confidence and privacy. Searching the web shouldn't require handing over tons of your personal information, which is why we've created our private search engine to keep your data safe.

How Search Encrypt Keeps Your Searches Private:
1. No Tracking of Search History in Any User Identifiable Way

3. SSL/HTTPS Encryption
4. Privacy by Design
5. Transparency

TinEye Reverse Image Search

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Description: This is the official TinEye Chrome extension. Find out where an image came from, how it’s used, or find higher resolution versions.

TinEye is the first image search engine on the web to use image identification technology, instead of using keywords, metadata or watermarks. When you submit an image to be searched, TinEye creates a unique and compact digital signature or 'fingerprint' for it, then compares this fingerprint to every other image in our index to retrieve matches. TinEye does not typically find similar images; it finds exact matches including those that have been cropped, edited or resized.

To use this extension, right click on an image on the web and select “Search Google with this image.” You can also add a clickable Search by Image icon that appears when you point to an image. When you search by image, you’ll see results that show you where that image, and similar images, appear on the web. You can see webpages that contain that image, or find the same image in different sizes or resolutions.
