Setting Safe Search to Pixabay

If you are ever in the search for royalty free, high-quality images to use with your students, Pixabay.com is the place to go. I have been a huge fan for years and have found from experience that the bigger they grow and the more popular they have become, the more I am running into questionable images.


Luckily, {although not foolproof} Pixabay has a Safe Search for images built right into their Website. Please know that sometimes, (like anything else) questionable content slips through the cracks. You are always your students best line in defense to make certain they are safe. Making sure students know how to "handle" the situation is also a priority (i.e. have them turn off the screen before the come and report it).

Here is how to access it Pixabay's Safe Search:

1. In the top right-hand corner is a menu button. Select it and press FAQ.

2. Scroll down until you find the Safe Search section and check off the box to enable.

That's it! Happy safe searching!
