Summary

Search Safely by SecurySearch - a safe haven for children online. Protect your little ones by blocking access to websites in sensitive categories and being made aware of potentially inappropriate search suggestions. Schedule "safe hours" for your children when this protection will come in effect so you can browse without limits and your child can browse age-appropriate content, all in one browser profile.

Note that by default SecurySearch uses search results from Yahoo! with "safe mode" enabled.

Update: With Chrome's new UI, click the "puzzle" icon on the top right corner, select Parental Control by SecurySearch and click the "Pin" icon to have easy access to the extensions. You can also unpin it to hide from view.
