Google recently forced my legacy YouTube account to merge with my Google Account without confirmation. Due to this, I cannot see YouTube comments by default because I prefer enabling Safe Search (strict) on my Google Account. Google mentions how Safe Search and Safety Mode are connected here.
Is there any workaround that allows me to view comments by default but also keep Safe Search enabled? Creating a new YouTube or Google account don't seem feasible because of how much data (playlists/subscriptions, gmail account) I have entrenched in the services. It would also be a pain to have to keep swapping accounts just to search and watch videos.
