Edward G.L. Carter:
SafeSearch is a program that offers a web search engine (www.safesearch.net) and toolbar which are being promoted via other free programs, and once installed on your computer, they will hijack your browser homepage and replace your default search engine.
You turn on SafeSearch so when you look things up porn and stuff doesn't show up.
Safe Search allows you to search Google (other search engines have the same functionality but may call it different names) without having to worry about seeing results that link to porn or gore or weapons or anything that people may find offensive.
Depends on what you mean. If it's ads popping up, then it's adware. If you're talking about on Google, its to block porn from showing up in normal searches.
Typically used by religious folks that try to hide sexually oriented content for fear of retribution for original sin. In other words, anything that censors us is due to religion.
Child friendly search.
