For getting benefit of personalized web search user profile is maintained which includes personal information. This user information can become biggest threat because most of the users are not comfortable to share their personal information in fear of hacking. To protect user information, privacy in PWS is required. To do so our algorithm provides balance between privacy by generating fake queries and quality by using online profiler. Experiment shows that accuracy and privacy protection is achieved.
