    Cortana is Microsoft's personal assistant.
    We can interact with her, talk with her, and she can help us do certain things, give us reminders and help us in other ways. It's important to remember that Cortana only comes activated on phones in the United States of America. If your phone is from outside of the United States, Cortana will be on your phone, but it will not be activated. If you want to activate it, you can find a video on how to do this on this website. Search for that, learn how to do it, then come back and watch this video. In this video, we're going to show you how you can adjust the safe search settings. To do that, we're going to press the menu icon, which is the three horizontal lines at the top right-hand corner of the screen.

    SafeSearch settings is a way of preventing children or vulnerable people from accessing inappropriate material.
    If children are using this phone, or this is a phone for children, then you may want to change the safe search settings. You can do that by tapping on the box just below SafeSearch. There is the option of turning it off if you're an adult and you're using your phone or only with other adults, then you may want to turn it off.
