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.

Amazing! (Few questions and suggestions)

I love this app and so I was wondering if you could add it so you can watch live streams and get notified when a video comes out or when they are doing a live stream? I know it is a lot down my lots of stuff to keep this app amazing, but if you could, I’d love for more people to watch!! Also I am older than 12 so could you make a 12+ section because some things are childish for me. The only bad things about it is that some videos and channels disappear. Like when I am watching a series and there are episodes 1 then 2, but no 3, then it skips to 4 and I never see that episode again. So there is info I miss. An example of channels disappearing is like “Cimorelli”, it just disappeared. And they would never do anything inappropriate, so I just don’t understand why I can’t watch them anymore. Idk what this happens.. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE consider my recommendations!! Thank you for all you do!! Bye!♥️😆😁

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.

Things I think should be added/fixed in my opinion

I think you should allow more YouTubers there especially the family friendly ones and updating every Channels. Like on one of them it had a video from 2 years ago as it’s new video. Please take note that I don’t mean to offend no one I am giving my honest opinion and I hope these new features will be added. Thank you ,let me talk about the app a little bit more like I think it’s amazing but as I said it lost a star because the “issues” (not really issues but things that should be added) I hope to see this in the future and when it is added I will add a 5 star review. And for the YouTubers that should be added I especially think ItsFunneh should be up there she is very family friendly sure there might be one or two videos where they might curse but it’s not like 24/7 where it’s inappropriate please add her it will make me and others very happy to see her there!
