Lock your Google Search to SafeSearch with a Password
Google, to give you more safe browsing experience, is now up with an enhanced version of Google SafeSearch. SafeSearch is a part of Google Search that filters out search and image results that are not suitable for the public. It isn’t 100% accurate, though, as no tool is always accurate.
Google, now allows you to have your search locked to SafeSearch with password-protection, and this is linked to your Google Account. A good idea though. :yes: To do this, all you have to do is login with your Google Account, visit the search preference page (google.com/preferences) and click ‘Lock SafeSearch’. You’ll be asked to authenticate yourself again.
SafeSearch Lock will now be implemented across all Google Domains (.com and all ccTLDs – .in, .sg, .lk, .co.uk, etc), meaning, your search will be safe across all Google sites. It’s simply a set of cookies that Google stores on your PC from different domains.
When SafeSearch Lock is enabled, you’ll be able to notice Google’s big colored balls, for which, Google says:
Even from across the room, the colored balls give parents and teachers a clear visual cue that SafeSearch is still locked. And if you don’t see them, it’s quick and easy to verify and re-lock SafeSearch.
SafeSearch Lock can be unlocked from the preferences page. And also, it will remain ON even if you sign out.
As this is cookie-based, if you have multiple browsers, you’ll have to enable SafeSearch Lock on each browsers and if cookies are cleared, SafeSearch Lock & preferences will be removed! :no:
