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 5-8 to explore their interests in a wide variety of topics including songs, cartoons, and crafts. While our “Older” Mode gives kids 9 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.

We all understand that safety is a primary factor for many online apps these days. But what comes to a parents’ mind: not all apps base their app on something for kids or minors. Which is truly accurate. If your kid requests an answer for whether or not they could have THIS app though…wow..I gotta say yes. It is actually NOT too good to be true…it’s amazingly filtered and hand-picked videos are selected for little kids and a bit older ones too. It ranges from 4 and under to 9-12. Sure, trusting an online review can be tough. Is this person throwing crazy ideas into a public letter or actually proposing something phenomenal? Go and look into the app yourself. Act as your child, see what they can access. Guaranteed happiness and ensured safety and appropriateness.

!! Please read !!

I have had yt kids ever since I had a iPad *now I have a phone* its made for 4 year olds because I’m on the 9-12 section and do you know what I see??? “hOnEY HeArT C” and “cOOkie SwIrL C” and little kids unboxing toys and playing with them!! And 20 year olds playing with LOL’S!!! I think there should be kids playing video games and that stuff, also pls update it we’re to you can see we’re the video was made and who made it bc that really bugs me! Also ADD BACK ROSANA PASTINO!!! And pls show new good Moriah Elisabeth videos!

Also maybe can u guys make shorts??? Instead oh having 5-10 sec videos and then changing them, also maybe a 12-15+ section?? That would be fun. And I’m just saying I heard the d word on a channel *I don’t remember witch one* so maybe parents are just better sticking off with normal yt?? And I know some parents are a little over protective and I know they don’t want there kids to have Snapchat and that stuff wich I understand, but most also probably don’t want there kids hearing the d word. So for all of this I give it a 1 and 1/2 out of 5 stars sorry kids yt but no.

Great with some flaws

So I love this app it’s perfect for watching videos and things you like but the thing is that it takes FOREVER just to upload new videos from channels i like and that’s very annoying another thing is that you know how like when you search up a channel name and there’s the picture and then only there videos right but with me it didn’t show it and I couldn’t keep up on the channel which was hard because I had to search it up find the right video all the time,I don’t wanna sound dramatic so I’m gonna say one more thing so I like to listen to music cause I just do , so there aren’t very good options when it comes to music like I find things like kids bop and cocomelon even when I put it at the highest age level it’s very hard to listen to music , and in the end I’m listing to kidzbop and cocomelon in the shower that’s all I have to say
Bless you whoever had the time to read all of this I hope this things change byeee✌️
