Working together to stay safe online
Keeping the web safe for everyone is a shared responsibility. Learn what you can do to protect yourself and your family online.
Set up simple safety tools and get more information about staying safe on Gmail, Chrome, YouTube, and other Google products.
Browse the web without saving certain information
When you want to browse the Web in private, enable Incognito Mode in the Chrome browser on your computer, tablet, or phone. In Incognito Mode, the pages you visit and files you download aren’t recorded in Chrome’s browsing or download history.
Limit access to just approved apps and games
Want to share your tablet without sharing all your stuff? On Android tablets running 4.3 and higher, you can create restricted profiles that limit the access that other users have to features and content on your tablet.
Get family-friendly results from Search
By enabling SafeSearch, you can filter out most of the mature content that you or your family may prefer to avoid. If an inappropriate result does sneak through, you can report it to Google. We're always working to improve our content filters, and this kind of feedback can help us make SafeSearch better for everyone.
Set it and forget it. Keep Safety Mode locked
If you want to keep Safety Mode on permanently, you can lock it. Then every time you access YouTube from that browser, you'll automatically be signed in to Safety Mode.
Google works closely with expert partners around the world to help keep the web a safe place for everyone.
