Internet Safety Month: Keep Kids Safe by Enabling Safe Search Mode

Posted on Jun 11, 2018 by Alison

June is Internet Safety Month. Many parents don't know how to keep their kids safe online and they don't know about all the tools available to help them do them. We love the tips and resources shared by the Michigan Child Protection Agency.

One of the things they suggest doing is Enabling Safe Search Mode, which Google, Bing and YouTube all have built-in. Enabling a Safe Search Mode will prevent inappropriate content from appearing on the screen. Check out these steps for making Google searches safer and leave a comment below to enter to win Kirk Cameron's new documentary "Connect: Real Help for Parenting Kids in a Social Media World." 

GOOGLE

  1. Visit the Search Settings page at www.google.com/preferences
  2. In the SafeSearch filters section, check the box next to 'Filter explicit results' to filter sexually explicit video and images from Google Search result pages, as well as results that might link to explicit content.
  3. Make sure to click the 'Save' button at the bottom of the page.
  4. If signed into a Google account, parents can lock the SafeSearch filter so others don’t change it. Simply click on 'Lock SafeSearch.'

    My boys are younger but so impressionable, so I want to start this now! They’re always asking to go on YouTube kids and this would help set them up for success and protect their eyes and ears. Thank you for introducing ing this to me! Just another useful tool to help us be Godly parents.

    Thanks for sharing this. There are older parents with younger children that the parents dont have a clue on how to make internet safe for children. This will help out. I encourage people to share this among there friends and family.
