Abstract: Last year was one of the most relevant years for technology, the number of users is constantly growing which makes it difficult to have a proper security of our most sensitive data. Although there are technologies that help in this purpose, we cannot find any tool to avoid or distort the user profiles created from Internet searches, being one of the most popular web services. The aim of this project is to develop a tool which disturbs the data collected by search engines. Thanks to market research, we found out what mechanisms and technologies are currently available, so it was decided to create an extension for Google Chrome that implements the query generalization mechanism. To achieve our goal, a technology is necessary to allow the semantic relationship between words, choosing WordNet as our knowledge base. On the other hand, to verify the tool works exactly as expected, a series of tests are carried out with real users that allow us to demonstrate that the chosen generalization provides results in accordance with the original search. Finally, based on the opinions contributed by the participants and the analysis done throughout the project, it is concluded that the designed tool is a first step towards secure web query, without compromising the most sensitive data of the users at the same time as providing searches of interest.
