YouTube's safety mode feature hides videos that contain content not appropriate for all audiences. YouTube, however, allows you to turn this feature off via the Safety setting found at the bottom of every YouTube page. If you had safety mode locked in to the Web browser, you must sign in to your YouTube account before you can turn off this feature.
Step 1: Open Safety Settings
Visit YouTube.com, and then scroll down to the bottom of the page. Click the button labeled **Safety: On**.
Step 2: Turn Off Safety Mode
Click the radio button labeled **Off**, and then click **Save** to apply the changes.
Lock Safety Mode
Step 1: Sign In
Click the **Safety: On** button on any YouTube page, and then click the **Sign In** link.
Step 2: Unlock Safety Mode
Click the **Unlock safety mode on this browser**, and then enter your password when prompted.
When already signed in to YouTube, you see this option the first time you click Safety: On.
Step 3: Save Changes
Select the radio button next to **Off**, and then click **Save.**
