Google Safe Search


Google Safe Search is a feature in the Google Chrome browser designed to keep adult Internet content out of search results for children. It also provides some protection against malicious websites.  Google maintain a list of websites that have been hacked and hence are dangerous to visit and warns you if you try to go to one.

To activate Safe Search:-

  1. First of all, login to Google if you have a Gmail or other Google account.
  2. Go to page https://www.google.com/preferences
  3. Tick the box to turn on Safesearch
  4. If you want to lock the PC so no-one else can change those settings or bypass Safesearch then click on Lock SafeSearch

If you have more than one browser available on the computer then you’ll need to repeat this process for each browser.

Then you’re protected by Google Safesearch.
