  1. Force SafeSearch with IP Address

    Google has a separate IP address that will resolve search quarries with SafeSearch only. This can easily allow administrators to redirect DNS searches for "Google.com" to the SafeSearch enforced Google website. This provides a wonderfully effective means of explicit content filtering. All devices under that router can be maximally protected from undesired search results. Redirecting is easy for the home user using DD-WRT or Tomato router firmware.

    I would like Bing to implement this effective solution. Otherwise there is no way to securely protect users and family.

    I encourage users to also use OpenDNS Family Shield to protect other content…

      Hi everyone

      Just a quick updated to let you know that the Bing Team is investigating an endpoint that will provide only strict search results but we do not have an ETA as yet. Will post an update once we have one.
      Thanks and please continue to provide other ideas you might have to make Bing a great search engine.

    • Add local tv schedule to bing as a preview search.

      I would like to quick search tonights listings for tv without going to each local network or the paper. They are listed in the local paper and it would not be that difficult to aquire and list with a network click or live link.

      • Amazon Gift Cards Missing Again

        I've read through some of the votes and I see the same 2 responses from Bing; (A) the gift card should be there now, if not sorry for the delay. Or (B) We are adding new rewards daily check back to see what's available! Until then check out X,Y, and C. I would just like to suggest that the Reward store show ALL rewards, rather they are available or not, and give user the option to still pick one as a goal or save it as a wish list item so that when it becomes available again they can redeem…

        • Amazon Gift Cards!

          Can you please add the option to redeem point for Amazon gift cards to my account. My wife has been using her Outlook account and Bing to earn Amazon gift cards for a year now. I switched from G-mail and Google to Outlook and Bing so I could do the same thing, but the Amazon card is not an option for me. It's very frustrating to see someone on the other side of the couch have access to something that you don't for what appears to be no reason whatsoever. If this isn't fixed I will be leaving Outlook to…

          • Add Amber Alert Integration to web searches

            When you search the name of the Child missing then add an AMBER ALERT INTEGRATION LIKE GOOGLE. Or search the state then add the weather, traffic, local news, weather alerts, and amber alerts if there is any.

              We’re working on improving the triggering logic for AMBER Alerts in the Unites States and Canada. Expect to see improvements here over the next couple of months. Thanks and keep sending us your suggestions!

            • Promote the cool and unique things Bing does in a dedicated box on the Bing homepage.

              Bing does a lot of cool things that not many people are aware of like having a guitar tuner or Bing predicting sport games. These cool and exciting features will help Bing get noticed but the problem is not many people know about these features because all these cools stuff are only promoted in the Explore section of Bing instead of being promoted on the homepage. I believe that Bing should dedicate a small box next to search bar to promote these cool little features. People using Bing would start to take notice at these features when they see this…

              • Add a "One year" option to the search results filter

                Currently, search results can be filtered for "All", "Past 24 hours", "Past week", and "Past month". There really needs to be an option for the "Past year".

                  Thanks for the suggestion. We are considering adding “One year” to the search results filter for Web search. In the meantime, please use Custom Date Range as a workaround. Thanks and do keep sending us your ideas!

                  • Support Laos

                    It's been a long time we don't have any option but Google Maps and I would like to use another due to the lack support from Google to Windows platform. If you could some support in Vientiane for the start.

                    Plus both Bing maps and Here maps are not support Laos.

To continue reading the news, you can click on the news article you are interested in. “Stay up to date” is a separate experience that lets you see updates on the topics you care about on the homepage. We take you to the interests page so you can sign up for the homepage updates. We’ll will look into how to make that clearer.

                          Microsoft Rewards should be avaliable in major countries such as those supported by Cortana.

                          • Re-brand Bing in to Cortana.

                            This would be good for a few reasons.

                            1) Bing has gained a little traction but Cortana has gained more love. To make Bing into Cortana might bring more people to using it. It would be slow because Google is still the big cheese but a lot of what Bing does is pretty great, people have to see it and to see it they have to want to try and and I think re-branding it into Cortana would make people want to try it.

                            2) You could give a new option to the home page. That option would be to…

                              Thanks for the feedback. These are really interesting ideas, and we have passed them on to the feature team for further investigation and feasibility.

                              Regarding 3) this will take a bit more time as the team investigates the feasibility of voice search and Cortana inside Bing. However, you do currently have the ability to conduct a voice search in Windows 10 using the Task Bar search box (see the attached image for more details). Again, thank you for all the great ideas, and do keep them coming, so we can create an even better experience for you on Bing.

                              With regard to rebranding Bing to Cortana, that is definitely an interesting idea, and something that has come up in team discussions. However, it is not something that we will be pursuing for various business reasons. But please, do continue to submit ideas to make Bing a great product!

                            • Improve local search

                              Add better suport for local search; it's the only reason I hate bing, on computer or my lumia; I want local results first, not the ones for e.g. hungary (i'm in croatia).

                                • Have real time traffic alerts like Accidents or police activity

                                  Having realtime traffic alerts like Accidents or police activity is very productive.

                                  You should use:
                                  WAZE -Traffic App
                                  Here- Traffic Map
                                  TotalTraffic- traffic
                                  etc.

                                  Google now has WAZE traffic alerts and i think that wouldbe very productive!

                                  You should also use Twitter or facebook to scan posts and tweets fot traffic alerts. Thanks!

                                    For images search results, allow me to select an image and see the location on a map where it was taken.

                                    • Go_Bing Idea 3 - Personalized bing - Just for you!!

                                      Imagine this!!!

                                      your personal bing page with all your favorite information like below pulled in together in a page :
                                      News on Windows 10
                                      MSFT,APPL,GOOG stock
                                      Images of Jennifer Lawrence
                                      Weather of your fav place
                                      Prediction or Schedule of your fav sports
                                      Traffic to your work
                                      Videos of funny cats etch

                                      All these in a magazine or attractive layout may be topped with your favorite picture as cover or in faded background.

                                      ***The idea is not Google now or like 'my topics'.

                                      But presenting all your favorite things you search daily/often in a cute layout - doing so bringing bing…

                                        Hello, thank you for your fantastic idea and comments. As a result of your suggestion, the team will investigate its feasibility and we’ll get back to you once we have an update. Please do continue to submit ideas to make Bing a great product!

                                      • Keep search bar on top when scrolling through search results

                                        This would increase productivity since after scrolling through result and not finding the desired page one would like to change the search query and for that one needs to scroll all the way back up. Why not keep the search bar up, glued to the address bar, in a minuscule way...

                                        Ex: see picture attached; I would like to change the search query "atnt" to "myatnt", and not to have to scroll up.
