How to Make My Google Settings Permanent

The Google search engine allows you to customize your search settings in order to filter explicit content, display instant predictions, set the amount of results per page, customize voice search options and specify how results open. The search settings are permanently associated with your account when saved, so it is available on any computer or mobile device on which you sign in to your Google account. Creating a Google account and saving your settings is the only reliable way to make the settings permanent independent of your browser, cookies or computer.
