    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 caused highly inappropriate suggestions to appear regarding child sexual abuse. YouTube confirmed that the site’s search bar had been showing disturbing suggestions, but said it was no longer the case. “We are investigating this matter to determine what was behind the appearance of this autocompletion,” a YouTube spokesperson said.
