SafeSearch Help

Many users prefer not to have adult sites included in their search results. Google's SafeSearch screens for sites that contain this type of information and eliminates them from search results. While no filter is 100% accurate, Google's filter uses advanced proprietary technology that checks keywords and phrases, URLs and Open Directory categories for more than 200 million web pages. Moreover, Google uses data licensed from SurfWatch, an industry leader in content filtering, to augment the filtering process.

When SafeSearch is turned on, sites and web pages containing pornography and explicit sexual content are blocked from search results. Google strives to keep the filtering information as current and comprehensive as possible through continual crawling of the Web and by incorporating updates from SurfWatch editors. If you find sites that contain offensive content in your results, even with SafeSearch activated, please send an email with the site's URL to and we will investigate it.
