Block explicit results on Google using SafeSearch
You can filter explicit search results on Google, like pornography, with the SafeSearch setting. SafeSearch isn’t 100% accurate. But it can help you avoid explicit and inappropriate search results on your phone, tablet, or computer.
How SafeSearch works
When SafeSearch is on, it helps block explicit images, videos, and websites from Google Search results.
When SafeSearch is off, we'll provide the most relevant results for your search and may include explicit content when you search for it.
Turn SafeSearch on or off
- Go to Search Settings.
- Under "SafeSearch filters," check or uncheck the box next to "Turn on SafeSearch."
- At the bottom of the page, select Save.
Troubleshoot problems with SafeSearch
We do our best to keep the SafeSearch filter as thorough as possible, but sometimes explicit content, like porn or nudity, makes it through. If you have SafeSearch turned on, but still see inappropriate sites or images, let us know.
