Five safety tools help to protect kids while they're learning on YouTube:

1.    YouTube SafetyMode

 Learn how to turn on and lock Safety Mode on YouTube.

2.    SafeSearch in Google Search.

Want to hide explicit images, search results, and videos?  Turn on SafeSearch, a filter that keeps many of the adult results you might not want popping up on the family computer out of your Google Search results.

3.    Flags on YouTube

If you see something you don’t like, you can say something. On every single video on YouTube, there is a flag that you can use to report a video if you don’t think it is appropriate and violates YouTube’s Community guidelines, including content that is violent, sexual or hateful.

4.    Google+ settings and safety notifications for teens

When a teen joins Google+ they have different default settings to help keep them safe and remind them to be responsible. Check out some examples.           

5.    Good to Know

Learn more about Google’s privacy and safety tools for families, get tips from parents at Google about family safety, and find out more what Google does to protect you, your family, and the Internet.
