Parenting in the digital world just like you do in the real one has some similarities. As your kids grow up and mature, you give them more and more privileges and freedom. You may have decided that your kids are old enough to have access to the family Disney Plus account on their own, so how do you ensure that they won’t land on a video you don’t think is appropriate for them? Disney Plus parental control is the answer.
UPDATE: As of February 23, 2021, there have been updates to Disney Plus parental controls! Keep reading to see what’s new!
Disney Plus parental control: child profiles
You can customize settings for each person who uses your Disney Plus account. This is particularly helpful if you have more than one child because you can tailor the settings for each kid based on their age and maturity level. To get started, create a Kid’s Profile for each child. You can have up to seven profiles per subscription.
- Log on to your Disney Plus account.
- Go to your Profile.
- If you are on a mobile device, choose Edit Profile. On a TV or web browser, choose Add Profile.
- Select a character icon.
- Toggle the Kids’ Profile setting on.
- Enter a profile name.
- Click SAVE.
When a profile classified for a child, they will only be allowed to access titles that rated are G, TV-Y, TV-Y7/Y7-FV, and TV-G.
Disney Plus parental control: limitations no more! February 23, 2021 update…
BEFORE FEBRUARY 23, 2021: Currently, you are able to set up a profile restricting what your child can view through their account, as indicated above. Nonetheless, there is no password or PIN required to switch between profiles, so your child can easily see unrestricted content through a different profile on your account.
CURRENT AS OF FEBRUARY 23, 2021: Disney Plus parental control has added several safeguards to protect your kids from seeing what you don’t want them to see.
- Kid-Proof Exit || You can choose a question that has to be answered for someone to leave a child profile. Therefore, you can leave the profile on the device your child uses and simply not tell them the answer. They won’t be able to navigate to a different user profile or even out of theirs. To choose this setting, toggle on the “Kid-proof Exit switch” in the Parental Controls menu.
- Profile PIN || Parents can now set a PIN number to protect a profile. Therefore, if you and your child share a device, they’ll never be able to get to your profile without the password. You could also create a PIN for an older child who may have different viewing privileges than a younger sibling. Set up or change your PIN in the Parental Controls.
- Profile Creation Restriction || To prevent your child from creating other profiles without the restrictions you prefer they have, you can create a password that’s required to do so. You can set up this safeguard in your Disney+ account settings.
