A safer online experience for kids
We work hard to keep YouTube Kids videos family friendly and use a combination of automated filters created by our engineering teams, human review, and feedback from parents to protect our younger online users. But no system is perfect and inappropriate videos can creep in, so we’re constantly improving our security measures and introducing more features to help parents create the right experience for their families.
Personalize your child’s experience with parental controls
Limit screen time: Set a time limit on how long your children can watch and help encourage them to move from watching to working.
Keep up with what they’re watching: Just check out the Watch It Again page and you’ll always know what they’ve seen and the latest interests they’re exploring.
Ban: Don’t like the video? Block the entire video or channel, and you will never watch it again.
Reporting: You can always alert us of inappropriate content by flagging a video for our review. Flagged videos are reviewed 24/7.
