Fix issues with SafeSearch
If you’re having issues with SafeSearch, you can try the fixes below to change your settings.
The SafeSearch setting filters explicit results, like pornography, to prevent them from appearing in your search results. While no filter is 100% accurate, turning this setting on helps you avoid explicit content when you search.
Note: Administrators of your device or network can set SafeSearch to always stay on.
If you have SafeSearch turned on, but still see explicit sites or images, let us know.
If you’re searching on images.google.com and see an image you want to report:
- On the image results page, click the image you want to report.
- Under the image click More Send feedback.
Phone or tablet
- On the image results page, tap the image you want to report.
- At the bottom right, tap More Send feedback.
Your internet service provider (ISP) or network administrator can set SafeSearch to always stay on. For example, SafeSearch is sometimes built-in to public wifi networks, operating system family protection settings, or Antivirus software.
If you think your network's SafeSearch setting is overriding your individual setting, contact your ISP or network administrator for more info.
If you allow cookies, SafeSearch should stay the way you set it. If you delete your cookies, your SafeSearch setting could get reset.
