how do i disable the location feature on search?
right now my default is baltimore, whenever i do a search, the articles i get are mainly u.s, 1st world
mainly i need articles from developing countries.

my search results were different when i was based in s,sudan than here
my location has changed but not my info needs :o(

startpage strips your information before sending your query to google.

you can just enter the Country/ region of interest in the search term.

Also, you may just want to use your university's library database. They're gonna have way more stuff searchable by country etc.

Hit up web of science/knowledge, that shit is legit.
