SafeSearch with Google
Google wants you to find exactly what you’re looking for in Google Search results and nothing more. Google SafeSearch helps you manage your search results so they don’t include sexually explicit websites and images. It’s a smart and simple way to protect you and your family from unwanted search material.
The choice is simple with SafeSearch. It can either be “ON” or “OFF”. Clear imagery lets you know at a glance if SafeSearch is switched on.
Start your SafeSearch today.
Setting up SafeSearch is easy.
- Visit the Search Settings page at www.google.com/preferences;
- In the sexually explicit video and images from Google Search result pages, as well as results that might link to explicit content; and
- Make sure to click the Save button at the bottom of the page.
