Looking up things online is something we all do. While the vast majority of the world uses Google to look up things online, you may want a safer and more age-appropriate search engine for your children to use when they are surfing the web.
So with that in mind, here are some tips and resources to provide your child a more positive and safe online searching experience:
SafeSearch is a feature in Google Search and Google Images. When it is turned on, it helps filter out explicit content in Google's search results for all your queries across images, videos, and websites. While SafeSearch isn’t 100% accurate, it is designed to help block explicit results, like pornography, from your Google search results.

Like SafeSearch on Google, Restricted Mode on YouTube is an optional setting you can use to help screen out potentially mature content you or others using your devices may prefer not to view. Like SafeSearch it isn’t 100% accurate, but it does block out the vast majority of inappropriate videos.
