Big Tech continues to censor conservative viewpoints online, prompting privacy advocates to look for alternatives.
Conservatives say they're tired of efforts to manipulate what they read and how they vote. Multiple reports say since 2016, Google’s search engine has been displaying more politically charged results.
“They can shift upwards of 12 million votes with no one aware that they are being manipulated, and without leaving a paper trail for authorities to trace,” Psychologist Robert Epstein, with the American Institute for Behavioral Research and Technology, explained.
Epstein says many Americans are looking for alternative search engines for their phones and computers that don't track and sell their information. Examples typically cited include Startpage, Brave, and DuckDuckGo. He also suggested ProtonMail instead of Gmail, which is owned by Google.
Epstein also told KTRH the reason Google has so much power is because the vast majority of people around the world use them for search.
