Here at Family Zone we make sure to enlist some of the best specialists in the industry. Written in conjunction with Cyber Experts, we explain how to implement safe search into both Bing and Google search engines.
Safe search prevents pornography and offensive content from showing in search results. It’s easy to activate safe search features in Google and Bing. Here we show you the steps you need to take to install safe search on your web browsers.
1. Go to Search Settings.
2. Under "SafeSearch filters," check the box next to "Turn on SafeSearch".
Within Bing you have the option of filtering material at a moderate level or a strict level. The 'Moderate' filter will block images and videos but it will not prevent text from explicit content appearing. The 'Strict' level will attempt to filter out all explicit content.
1. Go to Search Account Settings in Bing.
2. Select strict or moderate. This will depend on what type of content you want to block.
3. At the bottom of the page, select Save.
Safe search prevents content of an adult nature from appearing in search results. However, both Google and Bing emphasise that their safe search functionality is not 100% accurate. Explicit content may still be accessed despite the filter being on. Your child can also bypass the safe search settings by simply using a different browser or device.
The Family Zone website blocking software effectively blocks explicit content. Moreover, your child cannot easily bypass the controls you set. Using a combination of the Family Zone Box and app you'll create an internet filter for your child. This creates a safe online environment in the home and on mobiles to ensure that your child only accesses age-appropriate content.
