What is KidRex and how does it work?
KidRex is a fun and safe search for kids, by kids! KidRex searches
emphasize kid-related webpages from across the entire web and are powered by Google Custom
Search™ and use Google SafeSearch™ technology.
Google's SafeSearch™ screens for sites that contain explicit sexual
content and deletes them from your child’s search results. Google's
filter uses advanced technology to check keywords, phrases, and
URLs. No filter is 100 percent accurate, but SafeSearch™ should
eliminate most inappropriate material.
In addition to Google SafeSearch™, KidRex maintains its own database
of inappropriate websites and keywords. KidRex researchers test KidRex daily to ensure that you and your child have the best web
We do our best to keep KidRex as up-to-date and comprehensive as possible, but inappropriate sites will
sometimes slip through the cracks. If you find websites containing offensive
content in your results, please visit our webpage removal request tool
to tell us about the site you found.
While KidRex is not a 100 percent foolproof way to keep kids from
bad or malicious sites, we think it's a good start. For more pointers on keeping your family safe on the web, please read
