About Cliqz

Based on the principles of privacy, fairness and openness, Cliqz develops digital key technologies as a European alternative to the market dominating US platforms. These include independent search engine, browser and privacy technologies as well as new techniques for responsible advertising and statistical data collection for the benefit of all users.

The Cliqz GmbH was founded in 2008 by Jean-Paul Schmetz and is based in Munich. Since May 2013, the Cliqz GmbH has been a majority holding of Hubert Burda Media. In February 2017, Cliqz acquired Ghostery, the world’s leading provider of anti-tracking tools.

In June 2014, the concept “quick search directly in the browser” was launched for the first time, initially as an extension for the Firefox browser. Cliqz has been available as an independent browser since the end of 2015. The version 1.0 of Cliqz for Windows and Mac with integrated anti-tracking was released in March 2016. In addition, the Cliqz browser with built-in quick search engine is also available for Android and iOS. Cliqz is one of the few European search engine providers with an independent web index. Cliqz is currently developing an independent search engine that will be able to be used with any browser.
