We're all home during lockdown right, but parents aren't always around to monitor what their kids watch on streaming services.

Don't fret, Netflix has updated, and improved their parental controls based on feedback from their members. 


PIN protect individual profiles to prevent kids from using them.

Tailor their kids Netflix experience by filtering out titles that are not appropriate for their age. These filters are built using country ratings, so they are more intuitive.   

Remove individual series or films by title. When this filter is used, the blocked title(s) won't show up anywhere in that profile.

Easily review each profile's setting using the "Profile and Parental Controls" hub within account settings.

See what their kids have been watching within the profile created for them.

Turn off autoplay of episodes in kids profiles.
