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.

So amazing

This is our #1 app with our kids and I love love how I don’t have to watch over my kids shoulders to make sure they didn’t accident click inappropriate content. Thank you so much for this amazing app, the ease for the kids navigating it (my one year old can do it) and the parental controls and timer are awesome. The only thing I would LOVE for you to change is to please move the dang parental control lock off of the still shots for videos. My littles ones are constantly bugging me because they keep accidentally clicking the parental controls instead of the still screen of other videos and don’t know how to get out of it.

Used to be better

When I first downloaded this for my son the app in itself was a lot easier to maintain and control. I suppose some changes after recent updates does not allow the user to clear the browsing cache anymore. I’ve gone through the settings over and over but can’t seem to find that option anymore. While my son used to watch educational, entertaining or kid friendly videos now there is nothing but homemade crap videos of mostly adults “reviewing” toys or doing some other nonsense. Since the last update I’ve had to block probably 30+ channels from the lite nonsense that comes up on the app now since I am unable to clear the cache. Please add this feature back. I really do enjoy the app for my son but having to block all the foreign channels so he doesn’t get confused and the other nonsensical channels is getting a little overwhelming.

Corrupted

This app is terrible. Call them evil , call them trolls, or whatever you call them, they have found loopholes to corrupt the algorithm. You find a video titled “Learn colors”, “learn abc’s” or whatever innocent title , and somewhere along the way your child will be exposed to corrupted animations of popular Disney/Nickelodeon cartoon characters chasing each other with bloodied knives, beheading each other, masturbating, you name it. I caught my kid watching one of my little ponies being forced into marrying her brother. Readers out there will blame me, the parent, for letting my kid watch this. I expect that from the internet, but hey - you asked for a rating and wanted my opinion. And I felt it was important to put it out there. These videos are not screened or regulated in any way. App gives you option to block video, one at a time or by channel, but the corruption is endless. You’ll never finish blocking, these sick people are always a step ahead.
