Hello

Do you have a UK Norton Office? Did you buy your key in the UK? Don't know if that would make any difference or not.

Thanks.

Hello

I was just guessing that perhaps that might have something to do with it. I myself prefer Google to Ask.

Thanks.

Hi Skeggie -

Norton Safe Search does generally have geolocation awareness, but perhaps for some category of search it is not recognizing your location.  

Do you have example safe-to-share search term that show a difference in what you expect between Norton Safe Search and Google?

Thanks,

Cannot seem to get any answer to it!  I am thinking of deleting safe search but it appears people are having trouble doing that as well !

I am so sorry I am a pensioner and do not understand what you have just said, I struggle to keep up with modern technology, it is quite frightening when so many things now are on line,

>> what happens when you add your postcode / zip-code to your search term
>> for example:  cars + OX14 4SA

If I type cars + post code it brings up my area.

If I type Amazon (like i used to in google) it brings up USA Amazon

Hello

You do not have to use Safe Search. That can be turned off. You can use Google instead. You can set Google to use your location. I have Safe Search turned on, but I use Google. I do not like Ask limiting my choices of sites. Click on the 3 dots in IE !! and it will give you the choice of turning on or off Safe Share and Safe Search..

Type in Google in your Browser and it should bring up UK locations. If it doesn't, there should be a Settings Gear on the page. Click on that and find something in there that will allow location settings or something like that.

Thanks.

Hello Skeggie

You are very welcome. I'm glad you figured out what I meant by IE. Yes, Internet Explorer. I like Google much better than Ask.

Thanks.
