How can I change the setup for the search engine in Norton safe search?

How can I change the setup for the search engine in Norton safe search (Internet Explorer and Chrome) using Windows 10 on my Laptop to give a hit list in the Swedish language?

The instruction for Norton on a Swedish website search states that “Different search result is shown while you write the first letters of a word”. Writing words spelled in Swedish doesn’t give me many or any hits. I guess that’s because the “database” searched is in English. I.e. I write “dröm” (meaning dream) hoping to get a list of “drömjobb” (jobs of my dream) the list is empty until I press Enter, then it shows 3 items. The same search using google gives a list of 10 items, the list building up while I write.

Please help so I can use Norton even when browsing the web.

Hello. Norton Safe Search uses Ask . com as the hard coded default for search. It cannot be changed. Howeve, you CAN change the default browser search engine by browser. Please have a look at this article as it may assist you with the changes you are looking for.

Hello

So if you want to use Google as your Search Engine, then you can not use Safe Search? I remember I used to have Safe Search turned on and had the Search Bar, but I could use Google instead with Safe Search turned on. This was with I E 11. Now I am using Chrome, but don't seem to be able to have Safe Search turned on and still be able to use Google without having to go to the Google Home Page. I think those were the days before extensions.

Have a Good Night and

Thanks.

User may set Google as default search engine used in their browser address bar and may also use https://search.norton.com/.

Hello bjm

Thanks. Hopefully, I will get used to these extensions one day soon and also get used to Chrome at the same time.

Re: How can I change the setup for the search engine in Norton safe search?

Good Morning and thanks a lot, SoulAsylum for the information that language can’t be changed. I will now change the browsers to use google as default value but also make it easy to start Norton Search if I would like to. I can also stop thinking about the issue any more. Hopefully Norton will come up with a different solution and let the world know about it.

Before I signed up for Norton Community, I had 3 different chat sessions with Norton but none of them came up with the important info that you did. Don’t they have the correct information?

Greetings

Support will always be ever evolving, but is mostly scripted. They may/may not have a functioning product in front of them and/or actually use the product in question as so many of us here on the forums as well. Glad we got you the information you needed.

Cheers

Norton gives a customer the ask.com search engine -- that's your only option if you want to see those "safe" green "OK" in your search results.  There is no solution available to you for a "safe web" if you want to use another search engine.  I don't use ask.com because it's a lousy search engine (even worse than it used to be).  Zero sort options.

As I posted earlier, using a different search engine (as I use Google) makes zero difference in whether or not the "safe web green checks" appear on your search results. Please see my screenshot, this is on 1E11.
