Is there a safe search option for Swagbucks?

I just started on Swagbucks, so maybe I'm missing it, but is there a way to set the search to not pull up "adult" content? Or at least turn off the autocomplete? Just because I happen to start a search with "well" or "small" doesn't mean *that* is what I'm interested in.

I'm not sure. I've NEVER had anything inappropriate come up in several years with Swagbucks

I don't think that is swag bucks, auto fill goes off of what you type in your computer. I have never had that happen on mine, and I have been using swagbucks for years.

I'm only about 3 days in. Only once have I actually gotten something inappropriate as a search result, but I just didn't click on it. The other times have been the suggestions that pop up as I'm typing in the search box. So it isn't THAT bad, but I'd like to stop it from even suggesting adult content. I should be able to look up the "Small Pig" book with my 5yo without seeing a list of other, um, small things, you know?

It's good to know others don't have trouble with it. I'll give it more time.

I agree with this. The only suggestions I ever get are for things that I have searched for in the past

Just ordered a riding mower from Home Depot through Shop & Earn! That should earn me a few swag bucks (tax return "present" to me)

By suggestions I mean the autofill on the main search page, not past searches. It constantly adjusts as I'm typing, like google does. But when I type "small" in google I get "small dog breeds" as the first autofill. Swagbucks has "small v*gina" as the first autocomplete suggestion. Is it like that on everyone's?
