Ask.com Goes Live With AskEraser

11th Dec 2007 News, Industry News Less than a minute to read

After July’s announcement Ask.com has now gone live with AskEraser their new free privacy tool which can be enabled by its users and remain active for 24 months before it will need to be activated again.

This will mean that users can ultimately surf anonymously within the ASK.com search engine. This means that Ask will stop recording the searchers search queries and cookie information (Ip address, user Id, session Id and the complete query text).

If you do use the personalisation features on Ask using AskEraser will get rid of these along with other cookies stored on your computer.

It is unsure if this move will encourage many more users to use the Ask.com search engine over competitors such as Google, Yahoo and MSN but it is a good move and shows that they are making moves to further protect users privacy.
