YouTube: Safety Mode

Ever hate it when a website changes the UI settings by default? YouTube’s latest “improvement” is a safety mode feature that is designed to help parents shield their innocent children from things such as the parasite infested waters of the comments section, among other things:

Unfortunately, there are a few problems:

1. It’s on by default.
2. The area to turn it off isn’t exactly obvious. (Scroll down to the bottom of the page to find the on/off switch).
3. Some people are having issues with turning it off. To do so, make sure that you have the safety mode off. Then go to a video and click “show comments”. Afterwards, restart the browser and hopefully it turns off.

Nice one YouTube.
