How to Activate Google Safe Search

Source: Click here.

With Google SafeSearch sexually explicit images, videos and results that may link to explicit content get filtered out from your search results. 

To activate SafeSearch from the Google homepage, find the “Settings” button in the lower right hand corner and select “Search Settings”
You’ll see “SafeSearch filters” as the top result. Check this box to turn on SafeSearch and click “Save” at the bottom. 

As Google indicates here, the filter won’t catch everything, but it will hide most adult content. You can also lock SafeSearch by confirming with your email address to keep children from changing the settings. 
You can even set SafeSearch for your phone browser, iPad or iPhone Google app, Android app, tablet, or Android TV.

For step-by-step instructions for setting these settings and more information about them, find the “Help” section on the left-hand side. Then “Turn SafeSearch on or off”.

On this page, you can learn more about how SafeSearch works, how to keep it locked, and how to troubleshoot. 

In addition to SafeSearch it is important to teach your kids how to determine what websites are good reliable sources.
