I am wondering if someone could explain / break down the differences between the three “Safe Search” levels (Off, Moderate, Strict) in the Brave search engine.
Naturally, I would like to maintain my privacy and protect my information as much as possible, but I am curious if / how much a stricter security setting will provide less accurate results for a typical search? (News articles, sports data, movie reviews, etc).
I realize a stricter setting will limit results containing adult content and inherently dangerous sites, but will it impact the number and accuracy of “regular” site results?
Sorry if this question is confusing - I want to choose a setting that balances safety and accuracy. “Moderate” of course seems like the logical answer, but I thought an explanation on each of the choices from someone educated on the topic may help guide my decision.
@indyian92 Hi and a belated welcome to the community!
I guess the “educated masses” are missing from Brave Community. I really can’t address your question, I am one of the uneducated masses, but I am going to post a few Brave Help Center articles and a link to the Brave Browser Learn page. Hopefully it will help answer your basic questions and provide a starting point if you decide to jump into the rabbit hole.
safesearch : Used to enforce a particular choice over whether—and how—adult content is shown in search results. It can take one of three possible values:
* off : adult results are shown normally
* moderate : adult results are shown, but multimedia is not
* strict : adult results are removed
