About

Kagi Inc. is a company created with the mission to humanize the web. Our goal is to amplify the web of human knowledge, creativity, and self-expression and provide the user tools to fight against the web of greed, ad tech, and user tracking.

Kagi was founded in 2018 by Vladimir Prelovac in Palo Alto, CA (USA). Kagi has been completely self-funded since its inception.

Kagi Inc. currently has two products: Kagi Search, a fast, private search engine, and Orion Browser, a fast, zero-telemetry browser.

Our company headquarters are in Palo Alto, CA and our products are being built by a fully-remote team. Our team is small, like “feed with two pizzas” small. Of course, it’d be tricky to deliver those slices across 16 timezones, because our team is that remote.

Say no to Ads

Removing advertising from the web is the way forward.

  • Ads slow down the web, make using the web unfriendly and intelligence-insulting, affect the way we think and behave and have a devastating effect on children.
  • Tracking co-exists with ads and is a way to gather our personal information, usually without permission or consent, to increase adverting effectiveness.

Kagi Inc products are free of ads and trackers.

Kagi Search is an ad-free search engine that will actively downrank sites with lots of ads and trackers in the results and promote sites with little or no advertising. Kagi is a paid search engine (that is how we make money) and has a free plan that allows you to try it before buying.

Orion Browser is the world's first zero-telemetry browser built-in with powerful 1st party and 3rd party ads and tracking protection. Orion is free with an optional paid plan if you want to support its development and is currently available for all Apple devices.

If you cannot use the Orion browser, we recommend installing uBlock Origin extension for your browser. It is the best ad-blocking extension and is entirely free to use.

Products

Kagi Inc. is currently a maker of two user-centric, privacy-respecting, common-sense obliging products.

Kagi Search is a fast, user-centric and private web search engine with great results.

History

Kagi was founded by Vladimir Prelovac in May 2018 in Palo Alto, CA (USA). Kagi is completely self-funded since its inception.

We are not affiliated with the legendary Kagi - the shareware payments platform. That Kagi went bankrupt in an unfortunate turn of events. We liked the name and acquired it when we got the chance.

Early years

In the first couple of years (2018 - 2019) Kagi was focused on AI technology, driven by the notion that any future search engine will need to have a strong instant question-answering component. We called it "the last mile of search" and this project gave us the domain knowledge and expertise used in Kagi Search today. Other experiments like video question answering were built during this period.

In 2019 the first prototype of Kagi Search is made public. It used an unusual MUD-like, command-line mode with powerful features built in.

First prototype of Orion browser with support for web extensions on iOS is made, giving us 'wings' to continue building the future best browser on Apple devices.

What Does "Kagi" Mean?

The word "kagi" means "key" in Japanese.

Kagi is pronounced as kah-gee. You can listen to the pronunciation.

Who is Kagi's Mascot?

We simply call him ”Doggo” for now. He's adorable!

Doggo Kagi Mascot

Kagi Search Logo

Kagi Logo

More Kagi assets are available on the Kagi Assets page.

People sometimes ask why does Kagi have a "g" logo in the Google ballpark rather than a "k"?

Our designer insisted the Kagi logo is "anchored" in the letter "g," and we had to agree. Besides, we can't let Google own the letter "g" too, can we? ;)

Orion Logo

More Orion assets are available on the Orion Press Kit page.

You can go to the Kagi Assets webpage to access our resources and brand assets.

Search is in Public Beta

While Kagi Search is in public beta, we don't feel our vision is fully realized and ready for prime time. But we also don't want to build something in isolation. We want to build it with you, our users. We appreciate your support and patience as Kagi Search evolves.

During this time, we plan to fix bugs, introduce more core features, and improve the stability of the product.

You can read more about this in our public beta announcement post.

Kagi Search is driven by the needs of its users and we want to hear from you. Join our feedback forum and our Discord server. Help us make Kagi Search even better for you.

Reporting a Bug

When reporting a bug, it is important to give us as much information as possible to help narrow down what the issue may be. Search engines are very complex pieces of software—every detail matters!

Whenever you open a bug report, you will be given a template that you can fill out that will help you write your report. Here is a breakdown of what is included, and how it helps us!

Describe Your Issue

  1. Your query. The best way is to give us a direct link to the search or page you are having issues with, so we can simply click it and check it out. Thank you!

  2. Steps to reproduce. Sometimes a problem is more than just "search for cute dogs"—please include a clear list of instructions to reproduce the issue, even if you think it may be obvious.

  3. A screenshot or video of the issue. Very often, this is the best way to help us understand your issue. A picture really is worth a thousand words when it comes to bug reports!

Give Us Some Context

  1. Your browser and device (desktop or mobile). If you are on a special build, such as "Firefox Nightly", that is helpful to know as well! Testing multiple browsers is also a great help.

  2. Your search region. Sometimes, your search region can be a factor in the quality of results and the behavior of Kagi. Without this, it may be much harder to reproduce certain issues.

  3. Your Kagi node. Kagi is made up of many servers around the globe to give you the best latency and reliability possible. This will help us identify if issues are isolated to specific servers, or are a wider issue.

Things to Try

Sometimes there are a few things you can do to help us narrow down certain issues. Depending on the problem, you can try:

  • Turn off custom CSS
  • Disabling all browser extensions
  • Refreshing the page
  • Logging out & logging back in
  • Waiting for some time, then trying again

Common Questions

How do I find my search region and "Kagi node"?

  1. Open the Control Center in the upper-right corner of any page

Control Center button location

  1. Find the dropdown that says "Country/Region". Here, "United States" is the current region.

Search region and node location

  1. At the bottom, you will see "Connected to: US-EAST". Here, "US-EAST" is the current Kagi node.

I have an issue with my subscription or billing!

Please email us at support@kagi.com. When emailing, please include the email address associated with your Kagi account so that we can help you more quickly.

I found a potential security problem!

Please email our security contact.

I have an issue with the Orion browser

Please report the issue on the Orion Feedback Forum.

My report includes NSFW media

Please don't post explicit images, videos, or text directly on the site.

If you can, please censor the images. Otherwise, you can leave them out. If we need them, we will ask you to provide them another way.

I just have a question or want to chat with other Kagi users!

How do I set Kagi as my default search engine?

You can install a free browser extension or manually configure your browser to use Kagi Search. Check out our documentation for details.

Why does Kagi Search require an account?

Why does Kagi Search require an email address?

We require an email address to be able to verify the account really belongs to you in the following cases:

  • In case you contact us via email with an account related questions (in particular requests to delete your account or change your subscription)

Setting Kagi as Your Default Search Engine

Table of Contents

Option 1: Using the Kagi Browser Extension

Kagi is available as an extension for all major browsers. The extension sets Kagi as the default search engine and allows you to search with Kagi even in a private window.

Extension download links:

If you are a macOS, iOS, or iPadOS user, you can complement your Kagi experience with the free Orion web browser, produced by the same team that built Kagi Search.

Note for Safari Users: Browsing History

When you install the Kagi Search browser extension in Safari, you will see the extension requires access to your browsing history. This access is needed so the extension can intercept queries sent to other search engines and instead send them to Kagi Search.

No data from your browsing history is sent to Kagi Search beyond the search queries you make while running the extension. All queries made to Kagi Search are anonymized, never being tied to your specific Kagi Search account.

Bangs

Bangs are shortcuts starting with exclamation points (!) that quickly take you to search results on other sites. For example, searching Kagi for !w Monty Python will search Wikipedia directly for "Monty Python" and take you to that Wikipedia search result.

Bang Example

To take advantage of Bangs make sure you have enabled Bangs in your Search settings. You can also set up Quick Bangs and Custom Bangs, continue reading to learn more.

Enable Bangs

Note that Kagi supports all DuckDuckGo-style bangs.

Bang Examples

Bangs can also be used regionally. For example, you can search with !de [query] or !nl [query] to switch your region to Germany or Netherlands on the fly.

Some of the more popular search bangs include:

Supported Bang Syntaxes

For convenience, Kagi supports placing the bang trigger elsewhere in your query.

Here is the full list of patterns that we support:

  • !g query
  • g! query
  • query !g
  • query g!

Quick Bangs

For convenience, Kagi allows you to customize Quick Bangs which do not require an exclamation (!).

Configure Quick Bangs under Search in the Kagi Settings.

Quick Bangs

Custom Bangs

You can create your own Custom Bangs in Advanced Settings.

Custom Bangs

Once you "Open Bangs" you will see any existing custom bangs.

Custom Bang in Settings

From here you can "Add Bang" to define new custom bangs.

Custom Bang Editor in Settings

You can create your own Custom Bangs in Kagi using the Search Shortcuts menu.

Watch a Demo

You can see a full demo of using bangs - default, new and custom - by watching the video below.

Feeling Lucky

Sometimes, you just know the first result will be what you want. Or, you could be "feeling lucky" enough to take the chance!

When you start your query with !(space)query, Kagi will redirect you to the first search result.

Feeling Lucky Example

Here is the full list of "feeling lucky" patterns that we support:

  • ! query
  • query !
  • \query

Shopping

Kagi surfaces shopping results featuring unbiased reviews and no affiliate links to help you identify the best product across categories.

For example, consider searching for "Best Headphones":

Best Headphones

Top results include discussions focused on helping you find the best item to purchase - you are not bombarded with affiliate links and ads. Continue to scroll and you will see product comparisons across multiple vendors so you can pick what best suites you.

Compare Shopping

Keep scrolling and you will see listicles from popular review sites to help you make an informed decision.

Shopping Listicles

Kagi's shopping search will always return a detailed discussion of which product to buy not a competition amongst advertisers promoting where you should buy. Kagi is focused on providing you the best results to make an informed decision not polluted by affiliate links and advertisements.

Search Shortcuts

Search shortcuts allow you to redirect your query to other search engines, or your personal favorite sites using custom bangs.

More menu location

You can click these entries, and your current search will be performed on the listed site.

Customizing Shortcuts

By pressing "Customize", you can make changes to the shortcut menu.

More menu location

Search Engine Name

This field is the name of the shortcut that will be shown in the menu.

It has an autocomplete enabled that will make suggestion from our database of shortcuts:

Shortcut Autocomplete

Picking an option from the autocomplete will fill in the rest of the form for you. You can then make any changes you'd like.

If you have copied a shortcut, it can also be pasted in this field, and the form will be filled out automatically.

URL

This field is the URL that your search will be sent to.

Any place in the URL that you write %s will be substituted for your search terms.

For example, if the URL is:

https://wikipedia.org/w/index.php?search=%s

Then searching for "Steve Jobs" with this shortcut will send you to:

https://wikipedia.org/w/index.php?search=Steve+Jobs

Bang Shortcut

This field assigns a custom Bang to your shortcut, so you can invoke the shortcut from anywhere you search.

For example, if this field is set to "cool", you can invoke this shortcut by typing "!cool" in your search bar.

Bang Shortcut

Sharing Custom Shortcuts

To share a shortcut, start by opening the Edit dialog for your shortcut.

You can copy a shortcut's settings to your clipboard by pressing the copy button.

This will copy some text like this:

Crystal API Docs
https://crystal-lang.org/api/latest/#q=%s
!cr

You can send this text to your friends, and it can be pasted into the Search Engine Name field when they Add a shortcut.

This will automatically fill out the form with those settings.

Lenses

Kagi Lenses allow you to customize your searches by specifying which websites (and other parameters) you see in your results. We provide a few Lenses to get you started, such as one to search only online discussions and forums.

Here's an example using the built-in EDU lens:

Lens Example

You can create your own Lenses where you specify parameters such as:

  • Region
  • Up to 10 includes websites
  • Up to 10 excluded websites
  • Up to 5 included keywords
  • Up to 5 excluded keywords
  • File type
  • Results before a given date
  • Results after a given date

Lenses do not yet support image or video searches.

Default Lenses

Kagi offers several prebuilt lenses, the following are available by default:

  • Discussions: search forums from around the Web.
  • EDU: searches academic domains.
  • News 360: recent information from a selection of global news outlets across the globe.
  • PDF: search for PDF files.
  • Programming: official programming language websites and forums.

The following lenses need to be activated from the Lenses settings.

  • Noncommercial: results that favor noncommercial domains and topics.
  • Recipies: common sense recipies from sites with no ads.

Lens Example

Let's say you love movie news and reviews. You can make a Lens that searches only the movie-related websites you find most useful.

  1. Go to the Lenses page and click the Create New button at the bottom of the page.
  2. Fill in the "Create Lens" page with the details of how you want the Lens to constrain searches. Perhaps you live in the United States and you like certain movie-focused websites.

Lens Form

  1. Click the Save button at the bottom of the page.
  2. Back on the Lenses page, switch your new Movies Lens to On.

Turn Lens On

  1. Do a search in Kagi for a movie title.

Search Results

  1. Once you see the search results, enable your Movies Lens.

Enable Lens

  1. You will see the search results constrained to specific websites based on the Lens.

Lens Results

Lenses are a powerful tool for making searches more useful. If you think about the types of things you search for often, you can probably create Lenses to make those searches more efficient and effective.

Website Info & Personalized Results

To the right of each Kagi search result is a Crystal Ball icon. Hovering over the icon or tapping it will access additional features related to the webpage for that result.

Crystal Ball Icon

Web Archive & More Results

Near the top of the information window for the search result are two links you can use:

  • Open result in Web Archive will show you the history of the webpage at the Wayback Machine.
  • More results from this site will perform the same Kagi search again, but with results limited to the website of your initial result.
Web Archive and More Results Links

Personalized Results

Midway down the information window for the search result, you can tweak how the website for the result is treated in future Kagi searches.

Personalized Results Example

Your options are to:

  • Block the website
  • Lower the ranking of the website
  • Give the website a Normal ranking (the default)
  • Make the website ranking Higher
  • Pin the website to the top of search results

Web Archive and More Results Links

You can see your Personalized Results for all websites in Settings.

Website Information

At the bottom of the information window for the search result is useful data about the website for the result.

The information may include:

  • How many ads and trackers were detected on the website
  • The popularity ranking of the website
  • Whether the website uses a secure HTTPs connection
  • How fast the website responds to requests

Filtering Results

Kagi allows you to filter your results in ways you won't find on other search engines.

If you don't see the filters at the top of your search results, just click or tap Options.

Filter Options Button

Filter options:

  • Region (examples: International, United States, Turkey)
  • Order By
    • Default, Recency, Website, or Ad/Trackers Count
    • Ascending or Descending
  • Time
    • All, Past 24 Hours, Past Week, or Past Year
    • From Date until To Date
  • All Results or Verbatim
    • You can view all of the results Kagi thinks are relevant to your query, or only view results containing the specific text you searched for.

Filtering Results

Customizing Kagi CSS

Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is a language used to stylize HTML elements in web pages. You can fully customize Kagi's search and landing pages with your own CSS.

You can use up to 10,000 characters to customize your Kagi Search CSS. Custom CSS does not apply on Settings pages.

Customization is done in your Appearance settings.

Use the no_css query parameter (for example, kagi.com/search?q=test&no_css) to disable your custom CSS if something horribly breaks!

The Kagi Discord server has an #appearance channel where people are sharing custom CSS examples. A community member also started a subreddit where CSS can be shared.

If you want to learn more about how to customize your Kagi Search CSS, below is a video tutorial. The video features a slightly older design of Kagi Search, but the CSS principles are the same.

Also, here are some web resources about how to use CSS in general:

Turning Off Animations

Perhaps you don't wish to see animations used in Kagi. Kagi respects the "Reduce Motion" accessibility setting in your operating system (OS). The exact name for this can differ by OS.

Here is where to find the settings for each OS:

  • In macOS: System Preferences > Accessibility > Display > Reduce motion.
  • In iOS/iPadOS: Settings > General > Accessibility > Reduce Motion.
  • In Windows 11: Settings > Accessibility > Visual Effects > Animation Effects
  • In Windows 10: Settings > Ease of Access > Display > Show animations in Windows.
  • In Windows 7: Control Panel > Ease of Access > Make the computer easier to see > Turn off all unnecessary animations (when possible).
  • In Android 9+: Settings > Accessibility > Remove animations.
  • In GTK/GNOME: GNOME Tweaks > General tab (or Appearance, depending on version) > Animations is turned off.
  • In Plasma/KDE: System Settings > Workspace Behavior -> General Behavior > "Animation speed" is set all the way to the right to "Instant".

Redirects (URL Rewrites)

Redirects are a powerful feature that allow you to make modifications to search result URLs with textual find & replace.

Some use cases of redirects include:

  • Change domains to a preferred domain (reddit.com to old.reddit.com)
  • Fixing links to outdated documentation with bad SEO
  • Rewriting proxied pages (like Google AMP) to their source URL
  • Changing any http link to https

Managing Redirects

You can manage redirects in your Advanced settings menu, under Redirects.

Redirects Settings Location

This will open the Redirects Settings Page:

Redirects Settings Page

To create a new Redirect, press the Add Rule button on the Redirects settings page. This will open a form with instructions and some examples to get you started.

You can edit an existing Redirect by pressing the pencil icon.

You can delete a Redirect by pressing the red X.

Appearance in Results

Redirect Result Example

Results that have been modified by a redirect will have a indicator to show that they were modified by one of your rules.

You can click this icon to open the rule that modified the URL.

By hovering on this icon, a tooltip will appear showing you the original URL.

Redirect Syntax

A redirect looks like this:

^https://reddit.com/|https://old.reddit.com/

It is composed of the following parts:

^https://reddit.com/ | https://old.reddit.com/
  • The regex match pattern
  • A pipe (| ) separator character
  • The replacement pattern

The match pattern is written using Regex, a standard language for pattern matching sequences of text.

The replacement pattern is a verbatim string that will replace the entire URL.

You can use $1, $2, and so on in the replacement pattern to refer to capture groups in the match pattern, to retain parts of the original URL. Capture groups in regex are parts of the pattern that are enclosed in parentheses ().

For every URL on the page that matches the match pattern, a replacement will be triggered using the replacement pattern.

Regex Help

If you've never used regex before - and even if you have - regex can be hard to get right!

Here are some resources to help you write and understand regex:

If you still need help, consider joining our Discord server. Our community members and staff will be happy to help!

Examples

Changing a domain

We can make all https://reddit.com links change to https://old.reddit.com using a rule like this:

^ https://reddit.com/ | https://old.reddit.com/
  • ^ matches the start of the URL. This will stop the rule from matching a URL that has the domain elsewhere in the URL.

  • http://reddit.com matches exactly this text.

  • https://old.reddit.com/ is the replacement.

In this example, because our replacement pattern did not alter the original URL's path, Kagi will keep the original path for you.

See the Safety section for more details.

Changing part of a path

Some documentation websites put a version number in the path of the URL. Sometimes this version number can be outdated in search indexes, so we can use a redirect to help us here.

In this example, we will detect any URL like the following:

  • https://docs.rs/tokio/0.2.22/tokio/fn.spawn.html
  • https://docs.rs/smol/1.2.5/smol/struct.Async.html
  • https://docs.rs/sqlx/0.3.0/sqlx/index.html

and use a replacement to change the version number to the word latest.

This can be done with a single redirect like this following:

^https://docs.rs/([^/]+)/(?:[^/]+)/(.*) | https://docs.rs/$1/latest/$2

This example is a bit more complex, so we will walk through each part.

Match Pattern

^ https://docs.rs / ([^/]+) / (?:[^/]+) / (.*)

^ matches the start of the URL.

https://docs.rs/ matches the domain of the website.

([^/]+) is the first capturing group. This matches anything up to the next /. This group will be assigned to $1.

(?:[^/]+) is a non-capturing group, indicated by the ?:. This matches anything up to the next /. Because of ?:, it is not assigned to any $.

(.*) is the second capturing group. This matches everything that follows, to the end of the URL. This match will be assigned to $2.

Replacement Pattern

https://docs.rs / $1 / latest / $2

https://docs.rs writes the domain.

$1 copies from the first capture group.

latest writes in the word "latest".

$2 copies from the second capture group.

Conclusion

Given the rule:

^ https://docs.rs / ([^/]+) / (?:[^/]+) / (.*) | https://docs.rs / $1 / latest / $2

Will match:

https://docs.rs / tokio / 0.2.22 / tokio/fn.spawn.html

And the replacement will make:

https://docs.rs / tokio / latest / tokio/fn.spawn.html

Safety

Redirects have a few "safety" features to help make your redirects simpler, and to prevent the URL from becoming unusable.

When possible:

  1. If your rewrite pattern does not alter the path of the URL, the original path will be retained.

  2. If your rewrite pattern does not include a scheme (http, https), it will use the orignial URL's scheme.

  3. If your rewrite generates a URL without a host or a path (i.e., empty), it will not be replaced.

For example, this means the reddit example can also be simplified like this:

^ https://reddit.com/ | old.reddit.com

and it will work the same way.

Team Plan Features

Team Plan Default Settings

Standardizing on defaults will accelerate the onboarding of new team members and provide a consistent experience for all of your users. Every Kagi setting screen will have a “Set Team Default” button, which allows you to define the default setting for every new team account user.

Default Team Settings

Shared Domain Ranking Preferences

Team Members will share domain ranking preferences facilitating greater collaboration across users. All domains the administrator adds to the “Raise” list will be up-ranked in the search results for the entire team. The same goes for the “Block”, “Lower” and “Pin” domain lists. You may also elect to leave these blank and defer to individual users for their prioritization.

Domain Ranking Preferences

Shared Lenses

Team Members may choose to share Lenses across the team.

Shared Lenses

Search API

The Team Plan provides access to one of Kagi's most important features - the Kagi Search API. This is the same API that Kagi’s front end uses to render the results. The API use is charged the same rate as everyday use ($0.0025/search).

As a first step we recommend reviewing the Kagi API Documentation.

Kagi Search API Docs

Once you are prepared to proceed generate your private API token.

Kagi Search API Token

You may also choose to restrict access by limiting communication to selected IPs.

Kagi Search API IPs

Code Searching

Kagi supports developers with code samples in response to search results.

For example, consider searching for write!

Write Search No Filter

The results are not relevant to a developer, however we can further refine our search by applying the "Programming" lens.

Write Search Filter

Now the results are significantly more relevant to a developer AND now feature code samples.

Write Search Code Result

With Kagi Code Search you can find the code samples you are looking for, even in the depths of GitHub!

Write Search Code Examples

Remember to apply the correct lens, or create your own, to help refine your code searches.

Verbatim Search

Kagi will return "All Results" to a search based on the default settings as seen below.

All Results

You may further filter results by choosing to perform a "Verbatim Search" by expanding the "All Results" drop down.

Set Verbatim

Once this option is set it will stay enabled until you "Clear" the filter.

Clear Verbatim

Search Sources

We use heuristics and deep learning to understand query intent, select the best information sources, query them directly using APIs, and rank the results.

You can think of Kagi as a "search client," working like an email client, connecting to indexes and sources to find relevant results and package them into a superior, secure, and privacy-respecting search experience.

Our searching includes anonymized requests to traditional search indexes like Google and Bing and vertical sources like Wikipedia, DeepL, and other APIs. We also have our own non-commercial index (Teclis), news index (TinyGem), and an AI for instant answers.

Teclis and TinyGem are a result of our crawl through millions of domains, focusing primarily on non-commercial, high-quality content. Our unique results help you discover the best content you can possibly find online, sometimes from the quieter places on the web.

And, of course, we answer quick queries like "How far is the sun from the earth?" or "10kg in lbs" with our instant-answer systems that use dozens of sources and APIs, all connected to you quickly yet transparently.

If Kagi gets results from Google or Bing, it does not display paid/sponsored results. Kagi only shows the organic results to your anonymized queries.

Search Quality

Relevant and Authentic Search Results

Kagi can surface unique, high-quality, non-commercial content while avoiding results bloated by ads and tracking. Kagi's non-commercial index (Teclis) and non-commercial news index (TinyGem) as well as instant answers (IA) offer high-quality, relevant, and authentic results for the user. Clicking Info in search results will show a percentage of these unique Kagi results in search results.

Take a look at Kagi’s responses to a “steve jobs” query:

Steve Jobs Search

These results are authentic to Kagi. To provide them, we even crawl the Wayback Machine to dig up great content that no longer exists in its original state online. In every search, Kagi will always display unique results when possible as well as some of the typical fare.

How We Rank Results

Our algorithm primarily focuses on relevancy and user intent. When it makes sense, we try to prioritize non-commercial sources. A highly relevant answer to your query from a monetized site will fall lower in your results than the same answer from an educational site. Of course, if a site has a naturally high rank, Kagi factors that in as well. And if you personalize your searches, domains you lower will lose ground to domains you prefer.

Number of Results

We believe the name of the game in search is quality, not quantity. A search engine's job is to provide the best answer fast and within the reach of one or two pages of results. If the user needs to go to page 17 to find what they were looking for, we have failed.

Also note that one page of Kagi results will show 20-30 organic results compared to just 10 results typically shown on other search engines. So two pages of Kagi results are actually an equivalent of about six pages of results in other search engines!

Other search engines may also show an inflated number of results available. The reality is they don't really have that many results. You can check yourself by clicking through pages of their results, which at one point abruptly stop. Between deceiving users with a provisional high results number and showing the best results, we chose the latter.

We feel our approach is in line with our values. In the unlikely event of not finding what you are looking for, you can always modify the query slightly to get new results.

Avoiding Censorship and Bias

We do our best to avoid censorship and bias. Some results from traditional sources will reflect biases, but they’ll be balanced by results from other sources. Also, we have built product features to help with bias reduction. For example, our "News 360" Lens includes articles from respectable media outlets across the globe.

One of the signals that does influence our ranking is the presence of ads or trackers. We penalize bloated sites regardless of their agendas.

Search Speed

We’re obsessed with increasing speed and lowering latency, and we currently use three approaches.

First, we optimized our technology stack to increase code execution speed and decrease connection latency. 

Second, we reduced data transfer between Kagi and the browser, in some cases as much as 20x less compared to some of our competitors! This reduction has the neat side-effect of reducing CO2 emissions. Using Kagi Search will benefit the environment as well as you!

Third, our infrastructure is global, so you’ll always connect automatically to the Kagi node closest to you. 

Privacy Protection

"Free" search engines have two ways to make money—get more users or sell more ads per user. The easiest, fastest way is to mine more data to sell ads more effectively. Many search-engine companies have buckled under investor pressure, leading us to the online privacy issues we have today.

Paid models like Kagi only make money when users pay us, and users only pay when they receive great value. We offer superior result quality, features, speed, and—of course—privacy. If we compromise on any of these points, we lose users. Therefore, we have to offer a better product that includes the best possible privacy.

We designed our product to give you a good answer and get you on your way instead of forcing you to wade through a swamp of results that have leeches lurking under the surface. 

Data Collection

We only collect the bare necessities to run the service. Please see our privacy policy for more information.

We tie Kagi Search accounts to email addresses so we can help users with account recovery should they ever need it. Rest assured that all Kagi Searches are anonymized and are never tied to your specific account.

Note that you can register for Kagi Search with any email address you control. You do not have to use an email address that can easily identify you.

Building Trust

Let us reiterate that we do not log searches or in any way tie them to an account. We simply have no incentive to do it. Our business model is to sell subscriptions, not user data.

Kagi’s business model is unlike any other search engine. This means we don’t need or want your personal information (it would just be an unwelcome liability). In fact, the only data we store is an email address. That can be any email address, as long as you can use it to recover your account. There is no other personal information shared with Kagi.

By choosing this business model, we will have far fewer users than mainstream search engines. But we have also removed any incentive to misuse the information you have shared with us.

Privacy Protection

"Free" search engines have two ways to make money—get more users or sell more ads per user. The easiest, fastest way is to mine more data to sell ads more effectively. Many search-engine companies have buckled under investor pressure, leading us to the online privacy issues we have today.

Paid models like Kagi only make money when users pay us, and users only pay when they receive great value. We offer superior result quality, features, speed, and—of course—privacy. If we compromise on any of these points, we lose users. Therefore, we have to offer a better product that includes the best possible privacy.

We designed our product to give you a good answer and get you on your way instead of forcing you to wade through a swamp of results that have leeches lurking under the surface.

Private Browser Sessions

The simplest way to use Kagi in a private browser session is to install one of our browser extensions and then add your Session Link to the extension.

A Session Link is a special Kagi URL that contains a "login token." You can use a Session Link to automatically log into your existing Kagi session from anywhere, including within private browser sessions. You can visit your Account settings to get your Session Link.

Session Link

Because a Session Link provides access to your Kagi account, it should always be kept private. Never share your Session Link with others.

A Session Link is attached to the Kagi session it was copied from. You can Sign Out of that Kagi session if you need to invalidate the Session Link for any reason. Click the icon in the upper-right corner of a kagi.com webpage to open the Control Center. Then, use the Sign Out button in the lower-right corner of the screen.

Sign Out

Security

The security of Kagi's systems and data is our highest priority.

We have had our security independently audited by Illumant.

The audit found Kagi to be "Highly Secure" with "…no findings of material significance. This indicates that the organization’s applications, systems, networks and data are well protected."

If you discover a potential security issue on our platform, please notify our security contact immediately.

Why Pay for Search?

You should pay for your search engine to ensure that the incentives of the information provider are aligned with what's best for you, not what’s best for advertisers.

Every "free" search engine out there comes with a hidden cost. Your private details pass through your searches, and search results influenced by advertising can influence your thoughts and actions. Businesses that monetize your data owe you more than just a "free" account! Our stand against ad-supported business models has created a 100% ad-free search experience focused entirely on our users.

If you want a search experience tailored to you and your needs, one that could also make the world a slightly better place, then you need to break free from the ruts that advertisers and corporations have guided us into. Investing in Kagi is investing in a more humane web and your online future. It also invests in your children's future so they won't be bombarded with ads from an early age.

Ad-Supported Search Engines Don't Work for the Future of the Web

We will let no other than the founders of Google explain this. The year is 1998, and this is how they describe why it is imperative for search engines to be ad-free:

"Currently, the predominant business model for commercial search engines is advertising. The goals of the advertising business model do not always correspond to providing quality search to users. For example, in our prototype search engine one of the top results for cellular phone is "The Effect of Cellular Phone Use Upon Driver Attention", a study which explains in great detail the distractions and risk associated with conversing on a cell phone while driving. This search result came up first because of its high importance as judged by the PageRank algorithm, an approximation of citation importance on the web [Page, 98].*

It is clear that a search engine which was taking money for showing cellular phone ads would have difficulty justifying the page that our system returned to its paying advertisers. For this type of reason and historical experience with other media [Bagdikian 83], we expect that advertising funded search engines will be inherently biased towards the advertisers and away from the needs of the consumers."

The Anatomy of a Large-Scale Hypertextual Web Search Engine, Sergey Brin and Lawrence Page, 1998

They were right in recognizing early on that ad-supported search engines will be biased towards the advertisers. They probably could not foresee how much damage to the web adopting the model they originally criticized would ultimately cause.

Costs to Deliver a Superior Ad-Free Search Product

All search engines have search costs, development costs, and administrative costs. Most search engines cover this by advertising, tracking, and selling your data. We attempt to cover it with a simple subscription of USD $10 a month.

Our proposed price is dictated by the fact that search itself has a non-zero cost. In fact, it costs us about $1 to process 80 searches (wherever in the world you search from). So a user searching 8 times a day would perform about 240 searches a month, costing us $3 in search cost. But an average Kagi user is actually searching about 30 times a day. At USD $10/month, the price does not even cover our cost for average use.

We are betting that in the future, we can improve the product to reduce the average number of searches needed to find something. We are also betting we can reduce search cost with optimizations. This would not only cover search cost but make room to pay for other costs as well.

Our goal is to find the minimum price at which we can sustain the business. USD $10 per month is a price point that we lowered as much as we could, hoping it will allow us to have a chance of hitting sustainability at some point. If it turns out that we have more room, we will decrease it. But it can also be that we may need to increase it.

The cost of running free accounts is substantial. It has to be covered by paying customers, which makes the above math even harder. Beyond the Premium plan, your Tips are a way to help offset some of that cost.

All of the above has to be set up in a way that, after subtracting search cost, we have funds to pay for development costs (salaries) and administrative costs.

Kagi vs. The Competition

Speed

We’re obsessed with increasing speed and lowering latency, and we currently use three approaches.

First, we optimized our technology stack to increase code execution speed and decrease connection latency. 

Second, we reduced data transfer between Kagi and the browser, in some cases as much as 20x less compared to some of our competitors! This reduction has the neat side-effect of reducing CO2 emissions. Using Kagi Search will benefit the environment as well as you!

Third, our infrastructure is global, so you’ll always connect automatically to the Kagi node closest to you. 

Kagi vs. Google

Google's search engine has indeed changed the world and the way we access information. We value this contribution. We’re grateful to have access to Google's search technology and infrastructure for Kagi.

Instead of trying to create a search product for billions of people, we want to develop a refined search experience for sophisticated customers who value high-quality results, privacy, and speed.

Kagi will allow you to discover well-written articles from lesser-known blogs and use features like Lenses and Personalized Results. Ad-supported search must avoid this kind of depth and flexibility to stay profitable. Kagi has unique features, many of which can never be replicated in an ad-supported search engine.

We do not see Kagi as the Google killer. Google's scale and reach are enormous. Google also serves a purpose in the world —it did help enable our modern society to exist, with all its marvels and flaws. Heck, it even enables Kagi to exist!

Think of Kagi as a small, premium brand, providing a very different, tailor-made search experience for people who need and appreciate that.

Kagi vs. DuckDuckGo

DuckDuckGo has shown the world that a privacy-first search engine is possible, and we respect this contribution. But its innovation has slowed in the past decade. And, ad-supported business models will always force a company to make compromises and balance between serving users and advertisers. In the end, DuckDuckGo's search product is just ”good enough” (by our standard, sorry, DuckDuckGo!) and has been stagnant for years without any ground-breaking feature development.

In contrast, Kagi search does not need to compromise on user experience. Everything we do is user-centric. Kagi Search already has many unique features, like Lenses and Personalized Results. And because we depend only on our users for revenue, Kagi can and will always offer a much richer search experience for the user.

Kagi vs. Brave Search

We appreciate that Brave is making a free search product and that it cares about user privacy. That said, we believe that Kagi Search is a better solution.

Brave Search is pursuing an ad-based model where users can pay to opt-out of ads. This means that the product direction of Brave Search will be greatly influenced by the needs of advertisers. Kagi Search does not accept advertising and our product direction is guided only by the needs of users.

Brave Search also largely uses its own search index for results. Having a single-index source is limiting.

Kagi Search includes anonymized requests to traditional search indexes like Google and Bing as well as sources like Wikipedia, DeepL, and other APIs. We also have our own non-commercial index (Teclis), news index (TinyGem), and an AI for instant answers. Teclis and TinyGem are a result of our crawl through millions of domains, focusing primarily on non-commercial, high-quality content.

Our unique results combined from all of these sources help you discover the best content you can possibly find online, sometimes from the quieter places on the web.

API Versions

Available versions

VersionStatus
v0In Service

Each version of the API may contain arbitrary breaking changes.

We will make announcements when new API versions are available, and note any breaking changes that could impact clients.

Previous versions will remain in service until an announcement is made with their planned removal, which will give sufficient time for clients to migrate.

Breaking Change Policy

Clients are intended to use and consume the API as-documented. Use of endpoints or fields that are not documented are subject to change without notice.

This means the following things are NOT considered breaking changes:

  • Removal of an undocumented endpoint
  • Renaming, removal, or type changes of an undocumented field
  • Changes occurring in undocumented API version numbers

Any detail that is documented is guaranteed to be stable for the rest of that API version's lifetime. Any exceptions to this will be given with advanced notice.

Changelog

Changes to the API will be published here, as well as:

Making Requests

This section will guide you through the prerequisites and standards of making API requests to the Search API.

Authentication

Getting a Token

You can obtain a token from the Search API Settings page.

Tokens do not expire, but note that:

  • The token will only be shown to you once. This is to prevent an attacker who has access to your account from getting your active API token as well.
  • Generating a new token will invalidate the old one.
  • If you are removed from a billing plan that has Search API access, your API credentials will also be removed.

Passing Authorization in Requests

Authentication is supplied as a standard Authorization HTTP header, with a valid API token, using the form $TOKEN_TYPE $TOKEN.

Example:

Authorization: Bot AADAfUCEQwM._ascRlUhf7wXGjkrsDqDkWb74JfyGs3d2_QqUpcQsO0

Currently, the only token type is Bot.

IP Limit

To help secure and control your account's API access, you can optionally set up an IP address limit, which will cause our API to reject any requests made with your API token that do not originate from the listed IP address.

You can configure this on the Search API Settings page.

Base API URL

Unless otherwise noted, the base URL for all requests is:

https://kagi.com/api/$VERSION

Where $VERSION is a listed active API version.

For example, the full URL for the Execute Search endpoint is:

https://kagi.com/api/v0/search

Note: Currently the Search API is in beta. During this period, the only active version is "v0", and breaking changes may occur any time as we continue developing the API.
