Safety Scan Report
SCUMWARE ***** Alert
In my experience, most of the content on here is okay, but be VERY careful with your search keywords (don't put anything that has a high chance of being mistaken for a search for something you don't want to see!) if you do directly search on here and try to find links to what you're actually looking for through other websites (either somewhat moderated sites like Reddit that users frequently share links to this website on or a search engine with filtering turned on). As a result, I wouldn't recommend letting your kids browse on here.
Imgur is a very good, reliable, and secure photo sharing + hosting website. You can place any picture you'd like on here, regardless of what it might be. There is no administration / moderation patrolling the site to ensure that nothing "bad" is posted. Any type of photo, regardless of gruesomeness, goriness, expletive language, etc, can be posted, and put on the internet for all eyes to see. As it is an unmoderated website, it is not meant for children.
Imgur is a spectacular place where extraordinary people come everyday to look at and updoot adorably cute pics of cats, kitties, doggies and puppies. Imgur will make you laugh and think while warming your cold heart and beating you into the ground with feels.
