Cliqz for Linux

Disclaimer: We do not officially support Cliqz for Linux, this means that:
1. Cliqz for Linux is not as well tested as for other operating systems.
2. User support will not give priority to requests about Cliqz for Linux.

If you are feeling adventurous and still want to use Cliqz for Linux, you are at the right place. On this page you will find instructions to install Cliqz for your favorite GNU/Linux distribution.

Debian/Ubuntu/Linux Mint

We provide a 64-bit Debian compatible package that you can install from our custom ppa like so:

# Add the Cliqz repository signing key to be able to verify downloaded packages
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp:// --recv-keys 4E0C443A

# Add the Cliqz repository
echo deb stable main | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/cliqz.list

# Update the list of available packages
sudo apt-get update

# Install Cliqz
sudo apt-get install cliqz

Alternatively, you can download and install the deb package manually, but be aware that you will not benefit from updates:


Cliqz is also packaged and maintained on a voluntary basis for Archlinux.
Two packages are available in AUR: cliqz-bin ( and cliqz ( The former will download and install binaries compiled by us, and the second will allow you to compile Cliqz from source directly on your machine.

RPM package

RPM packages are also available for Cliqz, but there is no automatic update channel. You can install them manually on your system, but Cliqz will not be updated by your package manager. This means that you will have to download and install new releases yourself to stay up-to-date.

The artifacts can be found there:


If your favorite distribution does not like rpm or deb packages, you can find
a tarball containing Cliqz binaries there:

Last but not least, we appreciate all contributions, and if you feel that you
