Re: Default SEARCH engine

Try, chrome://settings/search, or click on new tab (command T), a series of  mostly blank windows will show on the screen. Click on one one and enter the URL for the search engine you wish to use. There are 15 windows on the MacOS version. I hope this helps.

Re: Default SEARCH engine

Then go to preferences, appearance, enable home button and put the search engine of your choice in the box under the new tab page. This may be changing when the next version of Epic is released as add ons etc will be allowed.
Good luck!

Re: Default SEARCH engine

Epic doesn't deny anyone freedom of choice.  You can visit any website you want.  What we have provided is a HIGH reliability of privacy in Epic. 

All three of the listed "private search engines" have REFUSED for years to explain to us what data they share with Google/Bing and how exactly they're private (that's StartPage, DuckDuckGo and Qwant).  If we can't trust them and don't understand how they handle your data, then we obviously can not ethically include them in our product nor legally.   That's why we didn't and couldn't partner with any of them.  For our current partnership, we hope to swap in the Yahoo private search soon (which they explain transparently unlike others), and with that partnership we're contractually limited at present hence the other limitations.  If you like DuckDuckGo, Yahoo should work well as they likely have comparable privacy and the same search results as both are powered by Bing.
