Presearch can easily be set as your default search engine on your desktop in two ways:

  • Browser extension
    At the moment we offer
     browser extensions for Chrome, Brave and Firefox. By downloading and activating our search extension, you will set Presearch as your default search engine.

    This will enable you to directly search with Presearch through your browser URL bar.


  • Manually
    You can also choose to manually set Presearch as your default search engine. You can do so as follows:
    - Go to your browser settings and navigate to the search engine tab
    - Add ‘other search engines’ and fill out the following details:
    Name: Presearch, URL: https://presearch.org/extsearch?term=%s

That’s it! You’re all set to now use Presearch as your default search engine on your desktop.


For mobile, please note that various browsers do not enable their users to set a default search engine (including Brave). For now, you are welcome to download our mobile application: https://presearch.org/apps.
