YouTube’s autocomplete feature has been suggesting disturbing search terms to users.
People have found that typing “how to have” into the site’s search bar has been causing highly inappropriate suggestions to appear.
These include “how to have s*x with your kids” and “how to have s*x kids”.
YouTube has been heavily criticised over recent days, after it emerged that paedophiles are posting inappropriate content and comments on the site and evading protection mechanisms.
It has now confirmed that the site’s search bar had been showing disturbing suggestions, but says this is no longer the case.
