Here’s how to turn safe search on iPhone and ensure that only the most family-friendly results will pop up when you type in what you want to see.

Steps to turn off the safe search on iPhone:

These are as follows

Scroll down and tap General

  • Settings > General > Restrictions
  • Tap Enable Restrictions, then enter a passcode (and then re-enter it) and tap the Require Password option, and tap Set Passcode
  • Scroll down until you see Safari under the Allowed Content section.
  • Tap the arrow and select Never in the drop-down menu.

Tap Restrictions

1. Tap Settings.
2. Tap Restriction Passcode and enter a passcode of your choice.
3. Scroll down and tap Safari under Allow Changes.

Turn On Restrictions

  4. Select Apps from the list of options near the top of your screen and then select Allowed Apps.
  5. Slide the toggle next to Safari under Allowed Content so that it reads Off or if it is already at Off, slide it back over so that it reads On for Safari only and then tap Done at the bottom of your screen, which is the equivalent of pressing save on a computer (or hit Save).

Turn Off Safe Search

In order to turn off Safe Search, go into the settings and scroll down to General. Tap Restrictions and scroll down until you see Don’t Allow Changes. Tap this button, select Off under the Allow Changes section, and tap Done. Then, when prompted if you’re sure that you want to change this setting, tap Turn Off Restrictions, then enter your passcode.

Safe Search is a feature that prevents explicit content from appearing in the results when you do a Google or Image Search. Safe Search on iPhone is enabled by default, but can be turned off by doing the following steps:
  • Go to Settings and select General from the list of options.
  • Select Restrictions. You’ll be prompted to enter your passcode if you have one set. Otherwise, you’ll need someone who has access to your device’s Restrictions settings in order to proceed. Once past this step, you’ll see an option labeled Safe Search Filtering. Tap it and slide the toggle switch so that it reads Off. If you want to enable Safe Search again at any time, simply follow the same instructions and slide the toggle switch so that it says On. Need help with your iPhone?
