My thoughts and explanations

Cyber Embarrassment………..

Last Friday one of my friend told me that, the previous night he was searching for the education board link for some reason. (Actually the reason is his sister told him to find some information about SSC registration.) So he was using google to search for that, But as he typed few characters google gave some search suggestion which was embarrassing for him. You may have also sometime faced this problem. It is really embarrassing.

For faster searching experience all the search engine uses query prediction. But sometimes it creates embarrassing situation. But if you do a simple work then you can overcome this situation.

First of all go to google.com from your browser. Then click the setting button on the top-right corner (As shown in picture 1). Then click ‘search settings’ option (As shown in picture 2)

Click the setting button on the top-right corner
Click the setting button on the top-right corner
 click ‘search settings’ option
click ‘search settings’ option

Now you will see the preference page where many options with check box are present.

step 3
Scroll down

Then scroll the page to downward. You will see an option for ‘SafeSearch Filtering’ . In this option check ‘Use strict filtering’ box (As shown in picture 3 and 4) … You will come to see another option for ‘Autocomplete’. in this option check the ‘Do not provide query predictions in the search box.’ option (As in picture 4)..

Check the desired options and save preference.
Check the desired options and save preference.

You are almost done , now click save preference button. Now you are ready for embarrassment free searching.

Thanks all.
