The search engine giant is now allowing search terms like ‘sex’ and ‘nudity’ in Google Image Search with the SafeSearch filter on the ‘strict’ setting. Till recently these terms were filtered by Google and the search results informed users that ‘since the strict safe search is active, these words have been filtered from the search’. This information has been brought to light by an internet provider in the US, providing internet connectivity to over 15,000 students.

The term ‘porn’ is still blocked. Google has responded to this by saying that it fine-tunes its algorithms to detect and remove adult content out of SafeSearch restricted search results regularly. Users still coming across objectionable images can report them via the 'Report offensive images' feature in the SafeSearch dropdown.
