YouTube adds `Safety Mode` to screen objectionable content
Washington: YouTube has added a "Safety
Mode" feature to the video-sharing site that allows users to
screen out potentially objectionable content.
"We know that some of you want a more controlled
experience," Jamie Davidson, an associate product manager at
Google-owned YouTube, said in a blog post.
"That`s why we`re announcing Safety Mode, an opt-in
setting that helps screen out potentially objectionable
content that you may prefer not to see or don`t want others in
your family to stumble across while enjoying YouTube."
Activating "Safety Mode" will not return any results for
a search using the keyword "naked" or "sex," for example.
"While no filter is 100 percent perfect, Safety Mode is
another step in our ongoing desire to give you greater control
over the content you see on the site," Davidson said.
"Safety Mode" can be turned on or off through a link at
the bottom of the YouTube page.
YouTube`s guidelines already ban pornography, sexually
explicit content and graphic violence.
