And that works fine for all the users on our PAN 4.x

But when the users go to, and search for sex,

Google is using ssl.

So you might need a decryption policy for this traffic to be detected and blocked.

Re: Blocking Google Images Content

Once you have SSL decryption configured, you can follow following documents:

1. (Video Demonstration of Google SafeSearch Custom App ID)

2. (How To Control Image SafeSearch for Google and Bing)

You can block following app-ids from "Google-SafeSearch-Strict-4.1" :

1. google-image-search-moderate

2. google-image-search-ss-off

3. google-safesearch-set-moderate

4. google-safesearch-set-off

When users go to or (ssl decryption required), they can search for any keyword. When they click on Images, they will get a application block response page (Device -> Response Page -> Application Block Page). You can edit this page to guide them to change the setting to SafeSearch option . Once safesearch is enabled, they can access the image search.

Hope that helps.
