Victory!

In our long back-and-forth with Google over the years, one thing we have asked for is that they make their built-in filter, called Safe Search, much more visible. A filter is only useful if users know it’s there. Specifically, we have met with Google executives and asked for Safe Search to be put in the top right corner of Google Images. While we continue to go back and forth on other matters of concern, Google agreed to make the change and have now placed it in the top right of Google Images. Considering that a search of the word “sex” returns countless images of hardcore pornography in a fraction of a second, we count this as a great step forward. More users will now know the filter is available to them. For more information visit
