How to use StartPage with custom settings

Added by Jesse M almost 4 years ago


I finally figured out how to use StartPage with your settings customized as the default search without cookies if anyone is interested:

  1. Go to StartPage settings and customize to your liking
  2. Save, then go back into settings and copy to clipboard the obfuscated URL given at the bottom of the page
  3. Go into Privacy Browser settings and paste into custom search URL
  4. Replace the portion of the URL do/my with sp/search
  5. Add this to the end: &cat=web&query=
  6. So it will look like this:[long string of characters]&cat=web&query=

And there you have it. Searches will retain your theme, search settings, POST option, etc.
