Despite being one of the most popular streaming platforms, Netflix has always left something to be desired with regard to its parental control tools, being a real mess. Now, with the latest update, the company has finally decided to implement tools that are worth using.
With the new tools, parents will be able to have greater control over the content that is presented to their children, as well as being able to manually choose which titles they do not wish to see on the list. In addition, it is now also possible to completely block access to a certain profile, protecting it with a PIN code.
How will you be able to control the content that the little ones can (or cannot) access
With regard to direct control over the type of content that is displayed in the children’s profile, you will have two tools at your disposal. More generally, you will be able to filter the content according to the age classification implemented in each country.
Then, in a more specific way, if you think that certain titles are at the “acceptable limit”, you can easily eliminate each one manually. This way, you’ll have a lot more control over what the little ones can see on Netflix.
Improvements have also been made to account management, making it possible to see in detail what the children’s profile has seen, as well as to disable automatic episode playback. In this way, it will be easier to prevent unwanted Peppa Pig marathons.
The new implementations were available as of today, so just make sure you have the latest version of the application to be able to configure the new filters.
