KidRex - KID SAFE GOOGLE SEARCH
KidRex is a safe and sound search option for kids. KidRex searches for exclusive kid-related Internet pages across the web. They are powered by Google custom search and use the technology of Google SafeSearch.
SETTING UP GOOGLE FOR SAFE SEARCH
The SafeSearch option in Google enables you to prevent possible adult contents from entering into your child’s search list. While there is no filter that is absolutely safe or accurate, SafeSearch will still help you avoid most adult materials.
This can be turned on or off by three simple steps:
Enter Google’s settings page at www.google.com/preferences .
Check the box beside “Filter explicit results”. This will help you stay away from sexually explicit images and videos in the Google search pages and other results linking to explicit content. You can simply uncheck the box to turn off the filtering option. Once this is turned off, you will get access to the most relevant search results that may also include explicit content.
Do not forget to click the Save option available in the bottom of the page.
You can prevent third parties from altering your settings by clicking the SafeSearch option while you are logged into your Google account. Make sure your cookies are enabled for SafeSearch option to work well.
