There are several content titles on Netflix that need a control access to certain maturity levels. You might have a child in your home, who you don’t want to watch movies related to sex. Or, there are also gay and lesbian movies on Netflix, which you feel should be restricted as your child has not been up to age to understand such issues.

There’s a good news. You can create a parental control on your Netflix account that’ll help you with restricting contents of your choice on the online streaming rental. You need to login to your account page and find the option on ‘Manage Profiles’ section.

One thing you need to remember while initiating Netflix parental control is that it must be changed from a computer, and the settings that you select will apply to all devices you use to stream movies and television shows on Netflix.

Netflix parental control currently offers four maturity levels:

  • Little Kids – Watch movies and TV shows suitable for all ages.
  • Older Kids – Watch movies and TV shows suitable for older kids.
  • Teens – Watch movies and TV shows suitable for teens.
  • Adults – Watch all movies and TV shows, including mature content.

You can create individual profiles for all the members in your family and set parental control on individual accounts according to your choice. If you’ve a kid, you can select the checkbox that says “This is a profile for kids under 12” and initiate the parental control. You can also notice that connect to Facebook feature is removed if you select this control, as children under 12 are restricted to use Facebook right now.

You can select the maturity level of different accounts that you’ve created and get/provide access to Netflix content according to the requirement.

It generally takes up to 8 hours for changes in Netflix parental control to come into effect. You can fasten it by logging out and logging back again after selecting the required option.

Happy binge-watching!
