Google Instant Monitors Restricted Words

Google Instant, which was recently launched gives its users the ability to access search results while typing. It works when it predicatively knows what you are about to type and brings the search results up automatically. But, news has filtered through today that Google have now scrutinized some words that are used in finding a search.

In a bid to stop indecent images from being sourced, Google are making every attempt to protect its users, particularly children. When Samuel Axon at Mashable reported, words such as, “bisexual” and “lesbian” are just two of the words that will be restricted. For someone typing restricted words, they will have to confirm that they wish to proceed to look at the content. Searching for these terms is not the issue; it’s when you type the words.

When you initially type a censored word into Google, the Instant feature filters the words to stop a large amount of inappropriate sites being shown in front of you.
