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.
YouTube Help: Disable or enable Restricted Mode
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.
