Parental controls are the names for a group of settings that put you in control of what content your kids can see. Combined with privacy settings these can help you protect your children from the things they shouldn’t see or experience online. To choose the types of Movies and TV shows your kids can watch, you can manage their profiles individually or create a profile with the Netflix Kids experience with titles just for kids.

Netflix allows you to create user profiles including a ‘kids’ profile. The contents inside the kids’ section are only appropriate for kids. You can choose the types of TV shows and movies your kid can watch and manage their profile. To get started, just head to the Profiles page on Netflix and click on ‘Add Profile’. Up to five profiles can be created.


Under Account settings, you can access all the profile-level settings and modify them accordingly. This tab includes the settings of all five profiles, including the kids’ profile. Here you can change the language, viewing restrictions, profile lock, view activity associated with that profile in detail, and playback settings.
