Have you noticed something new about our homepage?

@StartpageSearch Wow, that’s some prime real estate devoted to promoting Mastodon. Very cool!

@StartpageSearch I saw that! Happy to give #startpagesearch a follow. I recommend it to all my students.

@israuor @StartpageSearch That’s a good question and one I don’t have an answer to—do you mean languages for searching? German is the second most common internet language so I’d expect you could find anything you wanted, essentially.

@StartpageSearch Yes, it keeps not giving me the results and asking if I'm attacking your servers. You don't seem to deal well with the fact that people use your services on public networks, like universities, or that some ISPs group people under the same IP...

@acristoffers Hi Álan, we're sorry to hear that.
Our team is constantly working on refining our anti-abuse mechanism to reduce false positives. What’s most likely happening is that a combination of factors is triggering a false positive. We can look into this further so that we can get you back to using Startpage. Please feel free to send us an email to with additional details.
