A safer internet experience for kids
We’re working hard to keep YouTube Kids a place of family-friendly videos. We try to ensure the safety of our young users on the internet by making use of automatic filters developed by our engineering teams, reviews by real people and feedback from parents. However, we know that no system can be perfect. As the app occasionally uploads inappropriate videos that can circumvent controls, we continue to work to improve our security measures and add more features to help parents deliver the right experience for family members.
Customize your child’s experience with Parental Controls
Limit screen time: Encourage your kids to get up from the screen and engage in active activities by limiting the amount of time they can spend watching videos.
Keep track of what your kids are watching: By visiting the Watch Again page, you can always be aware of the content your kids are watching and new interests they’ve discovered.
Blocking: Got a video you don’t like? You can block the video or the entire channel to avoid encountering them again.
Flagging: When necessary, you can flag videos to warn us of inappropriate content and have the videos reviewed by our teams. Flagged videos are reviewed 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Create individual experiences for your children
You can create eight different child profiles, each with their own unique viewing preferences, video recommendations and settings. Choose in the “Approved Content Only” mode or choose the appropriate age category for your child from the “Preschool”, “Young” and “Older” age categories.
If you want to select the videos, channels and/or collections you approve for your child to watch, choose the “Approved Content Only” mode. In this mode, children cannot search for videos. “Preschool” Mode offers selected videos to encourage creativity, play and exploration. “Little” Mode gives kids ages 5-8 the opportunity to explore their interests by accessing content on a variety of topics, such as songs, cartoons, and crafts. In ‘Large’ Mode, kids ages 9 and up can search and explore other content targeted at kids, such as popular music and gaming videos.
All kinds of videos that appeal to different interests of children
Our library consists of videos on a variety of topics suitable for families. These videos develop your child’s creativity and playing skills. Here your kids can find everything from songs with their favorite shows to videos that teach you how to make volcano models (and even play dough) and more.
