If you have Netflix at home it will come as no surprise that your children are well aware of it and you will also know that Netflix has the actual inappropriate shows that you do not want your kids to watch!

Of course Netflix has tons of great shows and movies for kids, I mean don’t we all just love Netflix? 

But it might be good to restrict some content on Netflix that your children are not supposed to see and Netflix offers a few simple methods to block certain mature content (both in app and browser or whatever you are using to watch).

Here is how to set parental controls on Netflix:

  • Log in, and click on your profile icon.

And just follow the rest of the steps outlined here:

  • Create a PIN.
  • Scroll to Restrict by Maturity Level and click on the bubble above your kid’s age group: Little Kids (6 and Under), Older Kids (12 and Under), Teens (14 and Under), or Adults (15+). These restrictions are set according to the MPAA and TV rating systems (i.e., PG-13 and TV-MA).
  • You can also restrict all content so nothing will play without you entering a PIN. To do this, click the bubble above Little Kids.
  • If you want to restrict specific titles, regardless of their maturity rating, type them into the box under Restrict Specific Titles.

Now just make sure to keep your Netflix password to yourself otherwise your Child might get sneaky enough and change it all back again!
