Tip #405

Set different default Search Engines for Standard and Private Tabs in Vivaldi on Android.

You may be comfortable with one search engine for your everyday browsing but prefer a different search engine when you want stronger privacy. In Vivaldi on Android, like in Vivaldi on desktop and iOS (see Tip #378), you have the choice to set separate Search Engines as the default ones for Standard Tabs and Private Tabs.

To update the default search engines:

  1. Go to the Vivaldi menu > Settings > Search Engine.
  2. Select either “Standard Tab” or “Private Tab”.
  3. Tap on the search provider you want to set as the default one.
  4. Exit by going back to the main Settings menu using the  back arrow.
