Forcing Qwant SafeSearch

Forums General Open Discussion Forcing Qwant SafeSearch

    At the moment, SafeSearch is not forced on Qwant web search and one cannot use that search engine to search for images.

    I have found a better way of forcing SafeSearch on Qwant : adding a CNAME for that points to

    Oddly enough, this solution is not documented anywhere but it works really smoothly, whether you are searching for websites, images or videos.

    Sorry for the late response here. We tried, but unfortunately it did not work 🙁

    If we CNAME the domain to that IP, their search engine just stops working.

    Thank you for trying and replying.

    I contacted Qwant support and got this response : “Indeed, CNAME to is the easiest way to force safe search.”

    Too bad, it didn’t work 🙁
