Story Time

If you are allowing your child access to your smart phone or tablet and they are going to watch a ‘You Tube’ video there are some things you can do to make it less likely they will watch undesirable content. Please note this is not a 100% perfect fix as it relies on people flagging undesirable content, so we would highly recommend that you are always close at hand to monitor your child’s viewing.

 

How to set up ‘You Tube’ parental controls.

Switch on parental controls in browser by doing the following:

  • Go to Youtube.com on your browser and sign in to your Google account. When you are logged in you should be brought to the YouTube homepage.
  • Click on your profile icon in the top right hand corner. Ours is showing a tree as this is our profile picture.
  • Scroll down to the bottom of the menu and click on ‘restricted mode’ toggle it to ‘on’
  • Close the window and You Tube should refresh. You will now be viewing in restricted mode.

 

If you are viewing on a mobile device the process is as follows (and will need to be done again – setting up restricted mode is required for each browser/device.)

 

In the YouTube app:

  • Open the app and sign in.
  • Tap your icon and go into your account (at the top right of the screen as before)
  • Choose the cog icon and ‘settings’ from the menu
  • Choose restricted mode filtering and toggle the switch to ‘on’
  • Choose close and swipe down on the list of videos to refresh the video feed.

 

All the videos on our channel are unlisted so that they do not link to other videos on You Tube, in a bid to make the viewing safer for you and your child. There are also websites such as ViewPure which do not play anything other than the video you have requested, you copy and paste the url into the bar, or apps like YouTube kids. But again nothing is better than you actively supervising your child whilst viewing.
