Enforce SafeSearch on Yahoo search results. SafeSquid forcefully enforce the Safe Search on yahoo Search engine. It will not allow you to disable the SafeSearch.
When you’re using Yahoo Search at work or at home, SafeSearch can help you filter sexually explicit content from your results. Although SafeSearch isn’t 100% accurate, but it’s designed to help block explicit results, like pornography, from your Yahoo search results.


SSL Inspection should be enabled in SafeSquid. If not enabled, you can check our document - How To Enable HTTPS Inspection
