There is so much adult content on the Internet today that even innocent online searches may result in text results with links to these sites. This can be especially alarming if children have free access to a computer. The search engine, Google®, does provide a way for adult content and other types of offensive material to be filtered from its search results. Read the instructions below to learn how to apply a strict filter to Google® search results and keep potentially offensive content from you or your children.

Setting a filter on Google® for search results:

  1. Launch your Internet browser and go to the Google® page.
  2. In the search box, type in any keyword and press enter.
  3. Go to the “options” icon that appears on the right side of the screen and click on it.
  4. Click the first item in the menu entitled “Search Settings”.
  5. In the “Safe Search Filters”, drag the slider to the right toward the “Strict” position.
  6. If you want, you can lock the settings to your account. Just click on the “Lock Safe Search” and sign in with your account. Click on the “Lock Safe Search” button.
  7. Your Google® search results will now be filtered.
