How to Block Inappropriate YouTube Videos

YouTube Safety Mode, though not fool proof, is a nice way to filter out content from YouTube that you don’t want kids to see.

To enable this option, when you are watching a video you need to scroll down to the very bottom of that page and find the small link that says “Safety Mode: Off” (shown in the screenshot below). You need to click on OFF to turn it on.

You can also sign in to YouTube to make sure that the Safety Mode remains turned on.

Once you click on “On” and then hit Save, you get a notification mentioning that you’ve successfully enabled safety mode.

Here’s what YouTube’s Safety Mode does:

  • Hides inappropriate videos
  • Doesn’t return results for adult search terms
  • Hides comments by default
  • Inappropriate words in the comments are hidden using asterisks
