This past Summer, Google Chromebook worked hard to clean up their standard safety settings. Due to changes that went into effect on September 1, the National Center on Sexual Exploitation officially removed Google Chromebook from their 2021 Dirty Dozen List, an annual list of companies promoting sexual exploitation through pornography, sexual objectification, prostitution and sex trafficking.
New settings will be in place for all students, elementary through high school, in almost all educational settings, public, private or homeschool. Student Chromebooks will be set by default to "Safe Search" allowing for only "Safe Sites". These settings filter and block all sites with explicit content. Google Chromebook will now also disable "Incognito Mode" in favor of the better trackable, "Guest Browsing Mode." These new settings will be default and can only be changed with administrative privileges.
