Why use Gyffu?
Gyffu is a start-up search engine that is deeply concerned about online privacy. By using Gyffu as your primary search engine, no advertiser, government agency, or online search tool will be able to tie any keyword directly to you. Whether you are searching for general information, school/work research, medical conditions or other sensitive information, rest assured that no one, not even us, will know what you searched for.
In addition, we believe in unbiased search results. Therefore,we do not allow advertisers to pay for prime real estate location in the search results page. With other search engines, you will typically see that the top 2-3 results are paid ads disguised as regular links. We do not believe that companies should buy their way into your results page but should rather earn it with outstanding content that users can use to their benefit.
