Web safe set but porn images still visible!!!

Help - new to Virgin media and setting web safe for appropriate child settings to avoid porn and nudity but in search on phone and iPad you can still see images! Not what we wanted.  Does anyone know if there is a fix as we shall be leaving to go back to Vodafone!

I believe that most search engines have additional security settings that enable you to block such images.

The VM website setting should stop the underlying site displayed by the search result from being accessed.

Thanks. But if you are logged on as a google user you can set safe settings but if not logged on the images we don’t want to see can be seen by a random search which makes the web safe restriction pointless

Web safe works at site, not image, level:

That is correct but, for reason best know to Virgin Media, they fail to utilise this to redirect users to a search site's safe search page, when available, where moderation of search result is always strict, i.e.  hopefully no objectionable (mostly adult) material in results.
