    taking off safesearch

    Hi Rebecca,

    Turning off SafeSearch is different for every search engines and turning it off will not any filter adult contents, so it might not be safe if there are minors around. Here are different steps in turning off
    SafeSearch:



    Cortana

    • Click “Windows” icon, then the gear like icon for “Settings”.
    • Choose Permission & History.
    • You’ll see radio buttons under SafeSearch, select your desired permission.


    For Bing.com you may follow the steps in this
    article
    .



    Following these steps should resolve your concern in searching without restrictions. If you are referring for some other search engines, we recommend for you to check their support site for better assistance.



    Let us know if you need anything else.

    changing safesearch setting

    My safesearch setting automatically was changed to strict and when I try to change it back to off the setting states "we've set safesearch to strict because your browser communicated your preference for safe web browsing" How do I fix this?
