Important Changes to Google SafeSearch
Posted by Dan Schuler on 03 June 2015 02:59 PM

Google has announced that it will be making some changes to its SafeSearch feature. Currently, when the “Safe Search Enforcement” box is checked on your Cipafilter, searches are sent to a non-SSL version of Google. This allows your Cipafilter to log search terms, as well as to enforce SafeSearch and perform additional filtering through our Enhanced Safe Search features. Due to abuse by external parties, Google will no longer be supporting non-SSL searches and will soon allow only SSL connections.

What this means for you:

Recent versions of Cipafilter firmware will still be able to enforce Google SafeSearch. However, unless SSL Decryption is enabled, Google’s changes will prevent your Cipafilter from either logging searches or using our Enhanced Safe Search features.

Firmware versions supporting this change:

  • 8.6.3 and newer
  • 8.4.7 and newer

 

If your Cipafilter is on firmware older than the versions listed above, or if you have any additional questions about Google SafeSearch, please contact the Technical Support team at https://support.cipafilter.com.
