On the left side is an attempt to access a direct wikipedia entry for an adult theme (full URL not shown for obvious reasons), and on the right is a general adult-themed search attempted through Google Safe Search (we tried to use a PG-13ish search term that would be filtered out, apologies if it’s offensive to anyone): Note that if a direct URL is entered that has been dubbed mature themed, it will be blocked directly with a message saying “You cannot browse “(URL)” because it is restricted” – conveniently there is an “Allow Website” button, so if a child has encountered a website that should be allowed you can always tap that button, enter the devices restrictions passcode, and permit access to the site.
