Parental settings for you tube

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

Is there a parental lock for YouTube? My 5-year old loves watching videos on YouTube, but I afraid that most of the content is not suitable for her. How can I set it safely for my kid?

If you are using a computer to watch YouTube videos, there is no option for the parental control. The only option you have or available is the Restricted Mode. When you enable this option in your browser, YouTube will attempt to hide videos that may contain inappropriate content flagged by users and other means.

YouTube doesn’t guarantee the effectiveness of the filter but it should help you avoid most inappropriate content. Restricted Mode is browser dependent. The filter is enabled only on the browser where you enabled it. When you use a different browser, Restricted Mode will not be applied.

To activate this mode, go to YouTube then click on your profile photo on the upper right corner of the screen and select “Restricted Mode” at the bottom. On the pop-up dialog, click “ACTIVATE RESTRICTED MODE”.

Now, if you want to use the parental control, you need an Android phone. On an Android phone, start the YouTube app then tap the Lock icon on the bottom corner of the app. Read and enter the numbers that appear then go to “Settings”.
