Public Searx instances

Useful information


Note that most of the instances with a A+ grade in CSP column in this site are not fully functional - for example auto-completion may not work.

List of public Searx instances

Meta-searx instances

These are websites that source from other searx instances. These are useful if you can’t decide which Searx instance to use:

BEFORE EDITING: Please add your Searx instance by respecting the alphabetic order.


Public instances listed here may yield less accurate results as they have much higher traffic and consequently have a higher chance of being blocked by search providers such as Google, Qwant, Bing, Startpage, etc. Hosting your own instance or using an instance that isn’t listed here may give you a more consistent search experience.

Running in exclusive private walled-gardens

These instances run in walled-gardens that exclude some segment of the general public (e.g. Tor users and users sharing IPs with many other users). Caution: privacy is also compromised on these sites due to exposure of cleartext traffic to a third party other than the website operator.
