Norton Safe Search

Hi :-) Just what does Norton Safe Search do? I do not like having it installed and keep getting pop-ups to enable it.

I do not like having it installed because I usually by accident or automatically by default enter my searches into it, but I don't like the results and format it displays. I much prefer google, despite my not appreciating having my searches stored forever. Not fond of the results and format in Duck Duck Go.

Re: Norton Safe Search

No requirement to use Safe Search.... change your default search engine to your preference.  Norton and Ask have an arrangement = Safe Search.   With Firefox you may switch search engines on the fly.  IE just go to add-ons and change default search engine.

Hi hok,

The results of research with Norton Safe Search are much less than Google Search and perhaps safer.
Having Norton Safe Search enabled, you can use ASK as a search engine. Set Norton Safe search to OFF and restart the browser. In this way the Norton search box is no longer available on the browser.
See screenshot.
