How to Prevent Children From Watching Adult and Violent Content on YouTube

Save

On YouTube, you can access user-generated content free of charge, covering everything from instructional how-to's and music videos to short skits and comedic performances. Although trendy and featured videos likely are safe for most viewers, many parents are concerned with the types of mature content their children can access through the search feature. In an effort to safeguard the privacy of its users, YouTube offers a "Safety Mode" feature that restricts the availability of offensive or mature content. You can turn it on in just a few steps.

Locked Safety Mode

  • Sign in to your YouTube account.

  • Click the "Safety Mode" option at the bottom of any page to set your preference.

  • Click "On" and "Save and Lock" to opt in for Safety Mode and prevent the browser from accessing unsafe content until unlocked.
