A system is described that facilitates cross-device private search. The cross-device private search may facilitate using a first device to search content on a second remote device without the second remote device uploading the content to a cloud server. A query received on the first device may be forwarded to a third-party server of a service provider. Then the service provider can forward the query to the second remote device, receive search results from the second remote device based on the query, and forward the search results to the first device. Alternatively, in some implementations where the first device and second device are in close proximity, the first device and the second device may directly communicate with each other without the need to exchange communications via the service provider server.
