Safe Search for Groups?

Expected Behaviour:

Looking for a way to setup Safe Search only for specific groups

Actual Behaviour:

I only see a way to create cnames and have it affect all clients, not just specific groups

Debug Token:

n/a

Please explain/clarify.

Groups would be forced to specific cnames for some domains. I'd have the 'Kids Tablets' group use something like below...

YouTube *option to replace restrict.youtube.com with restrictmoderate.youtube.com

cname=www.youtube.com,restrict.youtube.com
cname=m.youtube.com,restrict.youtube.com
cname=youtubei.googleapis.com,restrict.youtube.com
cname=youtube.googleapis.com,restrict.youtube.com
cname=www.youtube-nocookie.com,restrict.youtube.com

SafeSearch

cname=www.google.com,forcesafesearch.google.com

Bing Family Filter

cname=www.bing.com,strict.bing.com

duckduckgo

cname=www.duckduckgo.com,safe.duckduckgo.com

CNAMEs don't work like that. You'll get no IP address returned if you do that.

Note that dig did not return an IP address and thus will not work.

Apologies, I'm not a DNS expert... just saw other people saying they did it this way.

Would be great to 'redirect' DNS / Domains for specific PI Groups so kids would have "safe" searches.

It is likely they didn't do it this way.

they may not, saw it here.

Still, having a way to do this would be appreciated by many I'm sure.
A google search shows many threads on this over the last 5 years, just about PiHole (in a few sites)
