Enable Google SafeSearch Lock Permanently On Firefox, Chrome etc

If you are a responsible parent, you cannot allow your kids to view websites which are not appreciated at their age. Google provides SafeSearch options for you to protect your kids from watching unwanted websites and domains. However, most kids know how to disable SafeSearch feature and access restricted websites by Google Search. Here I suggest a method to set permanent Google safesearch lock on a computer which cannot be disabled by simply choosing turn off protection option. It is a browser level lock to stop showing unwanted search results and can be done on major browsers like Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Internet Explorer etc.


Permanently Set Google SafeSearch On a Browser


In order to set permanent SafeSearch lock on a browser, you should login to your Google account. After configuring this lock, it will work on that browser even if you have logged out from your account. Since it is a browser level block, you must perform the same steps on all browsers installed on your laptop. For example, the lock you set on Chrome doesn't mean Firefox has same block unless you set it on Firefox too.

  1. Click on Settings on Search Result page
    Safe Search

  2. Click on Search Settings from the drop down menu


  3. Click on Lock SafeSearch
    Permanent Safe Search lock

    It is under SafeSearch Filters and you will be prompted to login to your Google account.

  4. Login to your Account
    logical block

  5. Click on Lock SafeSearch
    safety

    Now it will show you a message "Locking SafeSearch across all Google domains". When the process is  finished you will see the following message.

    "SafeSearch is locked across all Google domains"

    Safe is locked across all domains

How Would I Know Safe Search is On ?

You can easily find out whether Safe Search is on by checking the following symbol.
browse

You can verify the status of safesearch on your browser by seeing the above symbol. This lock works on the browser even if you logged out.


How to Unlock Permanent Google Safe Search Lock

The browser lock method we explained here is not literally permanent. One can easily break this lock by simply clearing the cookies and browser cache. It is because after deleting the cookies, Google SafeSearch settings will be back to default. So this trick is not as safe like installing parental control programs on your computer to prevent users browse unwanted search on Google. One method to prevent children from clearing the cache and cookies of a browser is to set master password. Once a master password is set, kids cannot remove cookies without typing the secret password.

Like you mention, this method can still be turned off by doing some simple things. Kids tend to find these methods out as they get older. The best way to lock safe search onto its strictest setting in Google, Bing, Yahoo, YouTube etc. is to use www.safesearchlock.com. You don't need an account with the website, it works will all modern browsers and with all user accounts on a Windows PC automatically. Works great for me and keeps my kids safe.

Destination Host Unreachable - Reasons and Solutions

The error message "Destination Host Unreachable " tells that the ping request from our computer cannot find the route to the destination IP address(destination host). It means, the Packet send from your computer reached the destination network successfully but the remote gateway failed to find the destination host. So the remote gateway sends an Echo message Destination host unreachable. One major possibility for this error; there is no route listed in the remote gateway, for the packet send from your computer, to the destination host. If there is no route available, it is impossible to find the destination host and your computer will receive an error message "Destination host unreachable" from remote gateway. So one of the reason for this can be faulty routing table. If the destination host is down at the time the packet send, it may result destination host unreachable error message.
