YouTube Parental Controls

Our kids are growing up as part of the internet generation and, if they are anything like mine, love watching videos online. As much as we would love to let them loose on YouTube to watch their cat videos, there is a huge amount of rubbish that kids shouldn't have access to, despite it being vetted for extremely explicit offensive content.

The good news is that YouTube has a "Safety mode" setting—its version of parental controls. It doesn’t guarantee to prevent all content of an explicit nature from reaching your children's eyes, although it is better than having nothing at all.

To enable YouTube Safety Mode in Your Web Browser
    IMPORTANT!! To prevent your child from turning safety mode off, you must log out of your Google / YouTube account by clicking your username link in the top right-hand corner of the browser window to lock the setting for the browser you are using. If you have multiple browsers, you need to open each browser and repeat this process to make sure Safety Mode is turned on in each one.

    Enable YouTube Safety Mode on Your Mobile Device
    Safety Mode may also be available on your mobile device's
    YouTube app. Check the settings area of the mobile app to see if it is an option. The process for locking the feature should be similar to the process above.

    NOTE AGAIN: YouTube warns parents that the Safety Mode feature is not 100% reliable and some offensive content could get through its filters.

    YouTube has released a free mobile app called "YouTube Kids" designed to provide a safer viewing experience for young children. Its built-in features make it harder for children to view the type of videos parents don't want them watching. It also blocks many search terms that young people might type in that parents find inappropriate.
    Other features of the app include a parental "timer" which allows parents to limit how long their children can use YouTube Kids before the app automatically turns off as well as an option that allows parents to turn off search.
