Bing Chat is a new feature of Microsoft Edge that allows users to chat with an artificial intelligence agent powered by Bing. Users can ask questions, request information, or have a casual conversation with Bing Chat.

There are a few possible solutions to fix Bing Chat unavailable with SafeSearch. Depending on the user’s situation, they can try one or more of the following methods:
1. Change the SafeSearch setting to moderate or off
This can be done by selecting the icon in the upper right of the Bing.com window, selecting Settings, and then selecting More. Choose your SafeSearch preference: Strict, Moderate, or Off. Select Save at the bottom of the menu.
2. Create a new Microsoft account and set its SafeSearch to strict
Then, continue using Bing Chat in your current account with moderate or disabled SafeSearch. This is a workaround that can help users who want to keep strict SafeSearch for their web searches but also use Bing Chat.
3. Check with your corporate or organization
If they have a policy that blocks Bing Chat or sets SafeSearch to strict for all users. You can check with your IT administrator or network manager to see if they can modify this for you.
4. Check if your country has a law that requires SafeSearch to be set to strict for all users
If you are facing restrictions while accessing Bing Chat from your current location, you can use a VPN server to bypass this restriction and gain access to Bing Chat from another location.
5. Use voice search to access Bing Chat
