Many web filtering services such as FortiGuard sets the default google search preference as “Strict“. While safe search proves to be very useful, it is also annoying at times. So how do we turn it off completely? Simple.

Go to https://encrypted.google.com/

There you go! No more Google filtering 😀


For those of you who don’t know about Google SafeSearch Filter,

Google’s SafeSearch uses automated methods to help prevent objectionable and adult content from appearing in your search results. While no filter is 100% accurate, SafeSearch should help you avoid most of this type of material.

  • Strict filtering filters sexually explicit video and images from Google search results pages, as well as results that might link to explicit content.
  • Moderate filtering excludes sexually explicit video and images from Google search results pages, but does not filter results that might link to explicit content. This is the default setting.
  • No filtering turns off SafeSearch filtering completely.
