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.

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.

It’s a great app. I love it so much, but there are some things I would say about it.

Special like I would recommend it for six year olds, and all that, but it can be really fun, but it can get boring eventually so except I would say have some other great apps along with it because eventually I’ll just be sitting somewhere or going on on the walk and then you come back to your house start watching it go wherever you want. You start watching it can get pretty boring eventually because if you’re watching this one channel and you go to this one your body gets this feeling I want to keep watching stuff but like this is gonna getting boring to me what should I do? I change the building Netflix with them not just like wasn’t working for me, Netflix is great up also to go on that so have some other apps with videos of video games. It can be really fun of that and entertaining for the first like mine or three months and you might feel like it’s getting that bomb that’s how it felt to me so hopefully you guys enjoy this app. I think it’s good but somethings they could ever change definitely like if you where can you stream like as your king channel that would be great and fine, but you can’t do that which is a bummer but you might be able to. I’m not sure because I have an M look that at the little lock. Maybe if your family was willing to you could look at the exit. I think it cost money to get that thing that something I’m not sure, but have a great time is it

!! 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.
