Turns on SafeSearch filter from popular search engines to help you avoid unsafe content in the results of your search feed.
This extension is designed for both Chrome browser users and Chrome OS users. Wherever you are surfing the internet, with whomever you are sharing the laptop, we aim to provide you a safe internet browsing experience with explicit and hazardous adult content filtered out from your search feed.
After you add this extension to your browser, the Safe Search filter is turned “ON” to protect your browsing experience as default. If you want to turn it off, you can go to the Settings section of the extension and make the change at any time you need.
Providing you a clean feed without adult content is our goal, but you should know that no filter is not 100% bulletproof. You might still be exposed to unsafe content when the filter is working.
