Google will soon default to blurring explicit image search results
In recent news, Google has announced that it will soon be defaulting to blurring explicit image search results in an effort to make the internet a safer place. This move comes as part of the company’s wider efforts to combat online safety threats, which also includes expanding its SafeSearch feature and password protection tools.
As a seasoned tech blogger, I applaud Google for taking these steps to make the internet a safer place for everyone. However, I can’t help but notice that this move feels a bit like too little, too late. After all, Google has long been criticized for its lax attitude towards online safety and privacy, and it’s only now that the company is starting to take these issues seriously.
Still, better late than never, I suppose. And given the sheer size and reach of Google, its efforts to clean up the internet will no doubt have a positive impact. Here’s hoping that other tech giants will follow suit and do their part to make the web a safer place for all.
