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.

Love this app!
So I think you should get this app because it doesn’t let your kid go on anything inappropriate. If you set it to their age then it will show age appropriate videos. And you can block channels and videos you might think are inappropriate for your kid. And your kid can be educated when they are on the app. Also you kid may also choose their profile picture! And what my kid loves about this app is that there is a cute little intro that shows you kid and me that their in the app. But what I absolutely love about this app is that you can set a timer when this app turns off. So if your little one is on this app then it will not let your kid in any of the videos. Don’t worry if your kid can get into the important stuff to control the app it has a math problem that your kid can’t solve. So this is the reason I think you should really get this app.
I like it, but has a few flaws...
Hello, my name is Chad and I have 3 kids: A 13-year old, a 6 year old and a 3 year old. I got this app for my oldest daughter, and I used to like it, UNTIL NOW! My oldest daughter does a very good job sticking to her shows, but there is one problem. My oldest daughter watches Gacha videos, but all the Gacha videos and night core videos are gone. Also, It really needs a better blocking and monitoring system. Anyone can create videos. I understand that the system isn’t perfect, and inappropriate content can slip through the filters. Also, another thing that unsatisfies me is the 30-second intro. It’s so long and I can’t even skip it. I gotta admit, the intro is fine but sometimes I want to skip it. I rated this 3 stars because of the horrible update. My daughter is 13-years old and she doesn’t really like baby shows. I switch it to the “older kids” setting, and it keeps showing her baby shows. It’s annoying as heck! And there are barely any videos to watch. For example, My daughter searched up the hurt Incantation form Tangled the series, but nothing came up! WHYYYYY?! There is nothing wrong with it! Also, Can you add a like, dislike and comment button please? And I have a suggestion: If someone tries to say a curse word in the comments, the app will say “Oops! You can’t say this word. Say something else!” Or things like that. But other then that, the app itself is good :)
Not happy 😕
My child complains to be that some of the you-tubers she use to watch don't show up or they say that there content is not appropriate. i know for fact that they are because i watch them with her. So every time a you-tuber that she likes posts a new video she has to watch it on the family computer. You also can't access the description of videos, for instance, when the person says to go to their merchandise store, whey usually put the links in the description, with this app she can't look at the description and use they links and such. however, this app does provide child friendly videos for children. On the other hand, this year she is turning 13 and will be switched to real yt. also, some of the videos are quite babyish and I don't think 12-year-old would want to watch them (that's why she's being switched) perhaps a 12+ group?
Edit: My Child has just informed me that they are now taking videos of of the platform. So videos that where previously available are not not. how does that even work? earlier they were fine but now they are not? i don't get it 😠😕
