- You can also set Startpage as your browser's homepage. This way, it is available each time you open a new tab or window. Please follow the instructions given here to learn how to do this.
- With the release of Safari 13, Apple removed support for Safari extensions that required control of the URL bar, which unfortunately includes our private browsing extension. There is therefore currently no way to add Startpage.com as the default search engine in Safari. Feel free to contact Apple directly and ask that they restore this feature.
