Safesearch when turned on helps block explicit images, videos, and websites from searches.  It’s job is to provide the most relevant results minus any explicit content such as pornography and other offensive content.  The companion YouTube restrictions is Restricted Mode.  Restricted mode prevents explicit videos from showing up in YouTube. Using marco parental controls, both safesearch and restricted mode can be turned on.

To do so attach to the marco wifi network and go to http://marco.local.  Enter in the either default username and password or the one you created previously. Go to the Web Filtering section under the Services menu. Within the General Settings tab, you can enable safe search for google and bing.
