Using Windows 10. I go to DuckDuckGo and turn SafeSearch OFF. Results give me NSFW Images but not Videos. All videos are from YouTube. Why are my search results for videos not returning NSFW results? What do I need to do?

Hi,

Make sure that Safe Search is turned Off in the Settings. If this is the case, it's possible that DuckDuckGo bases its search results only on YouTube, that's why you don't get any other results from other websites.
I am experiencing the same problem on Bing.com. When I change SafeSearch to Off or Strict it keeps defaulting back to Moderate without my prompting it to do so. Very frustrating! Why is this happening? Thanks.

If the filter reverts to Moderate when you reload the page or when you switch between the Bing tabs (web, images, videos...), check that your Web browser allows the use of cookies.
