New Safe Search extension causing slower response times.

I just updated my Chrome Norton Safe Search. My new url now shows "nortonsafe.search.ask.com" and I am now getting slower responses. Why?

**Is is absolutely necessary to change from Google search to Norton's Safe Search? It is definitely faster using Google search.

Thank you.

Maybe, run Norton Safe Web extension with Google search on Chrome browser -

Norton Safe Search web page on Chrome works okay for me with 'ask.com' as Trusted site or 3rd party scripts as noop with uBlock Origin-

Thanks for response. Over the years, I have been advised by techie friends to avoid ask.com. How long has Norton been associated with them? Is this something new?

Re: New Safe Search extension causing slower response times.

Thanks for response. Your FAQ link below for the Ask.com privacy policy does not work…shows 404 error.  Will you correct this and advise?

I’m concerned about data privacy. If I use Norton Safe Search, will my information be provided to Ask.com?
