How to enable safe search in youtube?

Hi All,

How to enable safe search in youtube?  example : Allow youtube but deny adult content (porn videos)

I tried by allowing "youtube-safety-mode" app and blocking "youtube-base", but giving app dependency warning. ( youtube-base needs to be allowed

Hi Gururaj,

Safety Mode, an opt-in setting that helps screen out potentially objectionable content that you may prefer not to see or don't want others in your family to stumble across while enjoying YouTube.

Depends on Applications: web-browsing, youtube-base

That is why, If you allow only "youtube-safety-mode" and blocking "youtube-base", it will give you an application dependency warning. So, it is recommended to add "YouTube-safety-mode" along with youtube-base.

As per my understanding, we cannot block content inside YouTube. We will identify the application as per the application signature, not the content ( data i.e porn video)  inside the application.

Hi Hulk,

If we allow both "youtube-safety-mode" and "youtube-base" then we cant block potentially objectionable content as "youtube-base" app allows to browse youtube even without enabling  "saafety mode" option enabled in youtube.




If you are an ex proxy user, you can't do the same with palo.

Palo is not a proxy that's mean you can make url rewriting for enabling automatically safe-search on youtube, google or other yet.

the only thing you can do is allowing safe youtube and block if it's not.

Hope Help.
