Back in December, we told you that Google had made a change to its SafeSearch feature in the U.S. that made it impossible for users to entirely disable SafeSearch when searching for Images on the site.
Now, that modified SafeSearch is making its way to other countries.

But here’s the gist of it, in plain English: A search for ‘boobs” in the U.S. (and other English-speaking countries) now yields SFW results, as Google Image Search is now defaulted to “MODERATE” level. Users are not allowed to fully turn off SafeSearch. In order to see those NSFW results, users have to be more specific with their searches.
