Those who believe that third parties are not interested in what they are looking for on the Internet should accept the new mapping service offered by search engine Qwant.
The service is now available as a beta version, with data entered by the user who is not monitored and also saved. Qwant Maps wants to implement data protection and easy navigation of its map service.
In particular, Qwant guarantees that no user travel history creates and does not assess travel made.
Open source application
Without fear of tracking, a Smartphone or a PC route can search there and take trips. Therefore, the complete source code of Qwant Maps as open source application is also published in GitHub. The maps used are from OpenStreetMap (OSM) free projects.
The possibility is possible
You can also personalize the map service, without having to repudiate data protection. For this purpose, Qwant offers users to store encryption data encrypted on their own devices. The feature is based on integrated Masq technology, which is also a development of the European search engine Qwant.
"The version of our Maps beta has long been on the list of our users' wants Now it's finally here and we look forward to the intensive tests and feedback to further optimize the maps" it is said by Qwant Germany. Results from Qwant Maps should also be visible in Qwant results in search engine results.
Unique Features: Privacy
In respect of the privacy of its users, Qwant clearly wants to differentiate itself from other map services. According to Qwant, map services calculate around 88.5 million kilometers a day, which they are examining and simultaneously storing. "As services come from just to facilitate our travels, whether by car or on foot, they systematically collect each of our movements to study and use for targeted advertising goals. "
Search Engine Developed in France, Qwant has its own web-indexing technology, which has since been promised to block tracking for promotional purposes, thereby protecting the privacy of users its.
