Kids Search Engines. Google's Safe Kids Search Engine. Kids Search Engines We started Safe Search for Kids in order to bring awareness to Google’s Safe Search tool. Most people do not know that the default setting on your computer is set to “moderate safe filtering” when using Google’s regular home page. To set search filtering on your computer to the most strict filtering for young children and teens, you need to change the setting on every computer you own or purchase internet security software. However, when you have your kids at home or students in school conduct their searches on Google SafeSearch for Kids, you can be sure that Google safe search is always set to the highest level of security for safe browsing. Please be advised that no safe search engine should replace the supervision of a parent or teacher when it comes to children browsing the internet. Kids search engines are not flawless.
