How do I turn on SafeSearch on Chrome?

Answered by Frank Schwing

To turn on SafeSearch on Chrome, follow these steps:

1. Open your Chrome browser on your computer.
2. Click on the three dots icon in the top-right corner of the browser window.
3. From the drop-down menu, click on “Settings”.
4. Scroll down and click on “Search engine”.
5. Under the “Search engine used in the address bar” section, click on “Manage search engines”.
6. In the list of search engines, locate “Google” and click on the three dots icon next to it.
7. Select “Edit” from the options that appear.
8. In the “Search engine” section, you will see a box with the search URL. Add “&safe=active” (without the quotation marks) at the end of the URL.
For example, the URL should look like this: “”.
9. Click “Save” to apply the changes.

Once you have completed these steps, SafeSearch will be turned on in Chrome. This means that explicit adult content and other potentially inappropriate material will be filtered out from your search results.

It’s important to note that enabling SafeSearch on Chrome only affects the browser you are using on your computer. If you use other browsers or devices, you will need to enable SafeSearch on those separately.

I personally find using SafeSearch to be beneficial as it helps create a safer browsing experience, especially when children or young adults are using the computer. By filtering out explicit content, it provides a more family-friendly environment and peace of mind.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any further questions.
