How To Enable Safe Search On Google

Are you worried about whether your children can stumble onto content in Youtube that isn’t appropriate or safe? This short video will show you how to use safe search on Google so that you can avoid this for your children.

Many web filtering services that schools force safe search to be enabled by default and so this is something that parents must do manually in the home. Therefore, this is an important tip for parents who may not have filtering set up on their home networks.

This video is slightly dated now but the concepts are the same. The main difference is that the settings for Google are now at the bottom right of the screen. All other aspects (such as having to log in to lock safe search on the browser) are the same.

The concept of enabling/locking safe search also applies to the use of YouTube, as shown in this tutorial which looks at three useful aspects:

  1. Using Safe Search on Google
  2. Using Safe Search on YouTube
  3. Using a safe web search engine search

We also offer online training, and an online learning community with
unlimited support which people can access 24/7.
