We’ve all been there. We’re doing a quick image search for a school project or maybe for that perfect .gif to express a specific feeling on twitter, and something unexpected pops up. Sometimes it is harmless, but as is often the case, it’s difficult to erase those images from our mind once they’re there.
Protecting your family, and yourself, from unwanted explicit content in Google searches is possible through Google SafeSearch. While no search filter is perfect, SafeSearch may help reduce the likelihood that inappropriate content might appear.
Turning SafeSearch on in the Chrome app on both desktop and mobile platforms requires you to sign in to your Google account, so make sure you’ve done that first.
While search filters do help, sometimes harmful images slip through. If you are looking for better ways to protect yourself and your loved ones from the dangers of internet pornography, consider using accountability software such as Ever Accountable.
