Google Search Thinks Epic Is A Robot

Our systems have detected unusual traffic from your computer network. This page checks to see if it's really you sending the requests, and not a robot. Why did this happen?

All of my other browsers work.

Re: Google Search Thinks Epic Is A Robot

Did they ask you to answer a captcha?  A bit irritating we know. 

That happens because Epic automatically routes your request via https/encrypted connection AND over the proxy.  This protects your search from being tracked (assuming you're not logged into Google). 

Google gets a lot of bot requests, so particularly because you're routed over a proxy they want to confirm you're not a bot.

Unfortunately we don't know a way around this that still preserves your privacy.

Yes, ddg works and no captchas from what we've experienced.     

You can also use the built-in epicsearch.in -- there are also blekko.com and startpage.com in terms of other search engines that respect privacy.
