Set the SafeSearch setting for Search

This policy setting allows you to control the SafeSearch setting used when performing a query in Search. If you enable this policy setting you can specify one of three SafeSearch settings which users won’t be able to change: -Strict: Filter out adult text images and videos from search results; -Moderate: Filter adult images and videos but not text from search results; -Off: Don’t filter adult content from search results. If you disable or don’t configure this policy setting users can specify the SafeSearch setting.
