A safer online experience for kids
We work hard to keep the videos on YouTube Kids family-friendly and use a mix of automated filters built by our engineering teams, human review, and feedback from parents to protect our youngest users online. But no system is perfect and inappropriate videos can slip through, so we’re constantly working to improve our safeguards and offer more features to help parents create the right experience for their families.
Customize your child’s experience with Parental Controls
Limit screen time: Set a time limit for how long your kids can watch and help encourage their transition from watching to doing.
Keep up with what they watch: Simply check the watch it again page and you’ll always know what they’ve watched and the newest interests they’re exploring.
Blocking: Don’t like a video? Block the video or whole channel, and never see it again.
Flagging: You can always alert us to inappropriate content by flagging a video for review. Flagged videos are reviewed 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Create individual experiences as unique as your kids
Create up to eight kid profiles, each with their own viewing preferences, video recommendations, and settings. Choose from “Approved Content Only” mode or select an age category that fits your child, “Preschool”, “Younger”, or “Older”.
Select the “Approved Content Only” mode if you want to handpick the videos, channels and/or collections that you’ve approved your child to watch. In this mode, kids won’t be able to search for videos. The “Preschool” Mode designed for kids 4 and under curates videos that promote creativity, playfulness, learning, and exploration. The “Younger” Mode allows kids 5-7 to explore their interests in a wide variety of topics including songs, cartoons, and crafts. While our “Older” Mode gives kids 8 and up the chance to search and explore additional content such as popular music and gaming videos for kids.
All kinds of videos for all kinds of kids
Our library is filled with family-friendly videos on all different topics, igniting your kids’ inner creativity and playfulness. It’s everything from their favorite shows and music to learning how to build a model volcano (or make slime ;-), and everything in between.

Well, I have used this in a probable span of two years and it’s only gone downhill. The content on here that I was relieved that I found, has been taken off for NO REASON. There might not even be anything wrong with the video. All of the really good nightcore music has been removed. Now all I’m left with is kids bop sucky standards. You only present the covers of songs that I would genuinely rather listen to the actual thing. YES, I GET IT EVERY LIVING PERSON CAN PLAY THIS SONG ON A DIGITAL PIANO, but let’s all just oppose the idea of an actual song.
Yes, I understand the fact that this is a 4+ application, but this is just repetitive, tedious and just annoying. It’s every single day, that more of my beloved stuff is repealed. It’s not even censoring, there’s still an abundance of WAY worse stuff, this is just invasive. But nope. My perfectly fine array of music is gone. The audio quality is gradually depleting every time I click on this app. AND UGH THE 30 SECOND INTRO! WHAT VIDEO STREAMING THING NEEDS AN INTRO. So thanks I appreciate it. I know this probably will be overlooked so.. bye bye YTK ✌🏼
Love! But a little babyish
I love this app! I'm 12 years old and still use this! I love how they are opening up about way more extreme topics! But.............(and yes a but) they say a couple bad words but that's ok! I also like how they have preschool elementary or older kid categories that you can choose! So if you are a mother or father with your little kid, bad words and extreme topics won't pop up on it! I recommend this app for all ages! Especially if you are in middle school cause there are lots of videos that will help you will the struggles of that age! They sure did help me! Great app! Oh and continue bringing back more old videos! 😋😋🤓😜😒🤓🤗 also they should make something called yt tweens and teens! We need that! This app is a tad bit babyish! There is not many vids for my age group! There are some tho
Low security standard
I’ve had the app before but we’ve had to delete it because my parents said that even if they delete all of the bad videos or block them it’s not working because people are hacking in and putting in inappropriate and scary videos for children. And so we just feel like this app needs to have a higher security standard and then I think the app would be a little bit more Secure for everyone. but it’s at Lowe security standards right now and there just not protective of what they have on the app. and that is very disappointing and some of my friends said that they had had to delete the app because the same thing has been happening to them and their parents I told them the same thing! If you’re going to have this app be careful of The low security and dad videos. Oh and all the mothers out there be careful of what your kids watch too! 🙂
