Qwant is a French search engine, launched in July 2013 and operated from Paris. It is one of the few EU-based search engines with its own indexing engine. It claims that it does not employ user tracking or personalize search results in order to avoid trapping users in a filter bubble.
During the development phase, Qwant searches were powered by Bing in addition to its own indexing capabilities. Qwant also confirmed the use of Bing advertising network.
As of January 2021, Qwant is the 105th most visited website in France and the 1458th most visited website in the world.
