It's already on the "never option."
I typed in www.google.com and brought up the actual search page for google, then typed into the google page and suggestions still come there, too. So as I type in the safari/google search box on top, and the google page search, suggestions are being made...
I did. I slid the filter bar to "strict." I just toggled from "always" to "never" and pressed save...the suggestions still show up.
Before coming here, I'd read elsewhere (not from a professional techie) that they thought this couldn't be turned off (the suggestions), but I thought that would be ridiculous. That it must be easy to turn that function off (or create a search option that does so). If it's not possible to turn off suggestions, it's still ridiculous (and not family friendly)! But so it goes with technology, I suppose.
If you have any more suggestions, I'll appreciate them!
I'm not with my Ipad right now, but before starting this with you, I cleared the cookies and cache and history the same way the guide you linked says to. Typing in search still brought up loads of suggestions, even after turning the function to "never"...although I had brought up your answer on the internet, so that was one page that was visited after clearing the cookies...
If the clearing of the cookies does work, does this mean every single time my kids type they have to clear? As in search, get the answer, clear, search get the answer, clear...
