Tavanero.info cannot be called a trustworthy search engine even though it looks like other reputable search tools, i.e. there is a search box in the middle of the page, and the search results page is opened for users after they enter a search query. It is often said that Tavanero.info is unreliable because it might display commercials for users (they usually appear at the bottom of the start page of Tavanero.info).

According to our specialists, it is not very smart to keep Tavanero.info on browsers also because it might collect various details about users. We cannot say which details are the most important for Tavanero.info because it does not have Privacy Policy or End User License agreement like other trustworthy search tools; however, it is very likely that it will gather such non-personally identifiable details like IP address, links and ads clicked, search queries, etc. These details might not seem important at all; however, we are sure that you will think differently when you find out that, for example, search queries might contain personal information too if you have ever entered something personal into the search box of Tavanero.info. All these collected details will be transferred to third parties no matter that they might contain personal information, which means that your privacy might be violated. You can, of course, make sure that this does not happen by erasing Tavanero.info from browsers right now.
