What is Google Safe Search?

Google Wifi’s site blocking uses Google’s SafeSearch technology to help block millions of sexually explicit websites. The internet is massive and no filter is perfect, but it helps avoid most adult websites.

SafeSearch doesn’t currently block sites containing violent or illegal content.

Note: Google Wifi’s automatic blocking prevents these SafeSearch sites from being reached, but it doesn’t block the sites from showing on Google Search results.
