How to Set Parental Controls on Roku

To access parental controls for your Roku TV: Press Home on your Roku TV remote. Scroll and select Settings. Select Parental controls.

If you have children at home, you need to be careful about what they watch on your Roku device. Roku allows you to set parental controls to restrict access to certain channels and applications, but it is not foolproof. In this post, we’ll show you how to set up parental controls on your Roku and other ways to keep your kids safe while using the device.

To enable parental controls on your Roku device, go to “Settings” and scroll down to “Parental Controls.” You will need to set up a password if you haven’t changed it before. By default, the password is “0000.” Once you have enabled parental controls, you can lock channels and applications by age category. However, this feature only controls the tuner, antenna, or cable, and not the applications. Your kids can still watch anything if they have access to the remote.

To lock specific applications, you need to open the application and look for the parental controls settings. Some applications have their own parental controls that you can use to restrict access to certain content. If you want your kids to watch only specific channels, remove all the other applications and install only the ones that are suitable for them. You can find a list of kid-friendly applications by going to “Streaming Channels” and looking for “Family and Kids.”

If your children watch YouTube, you can restrict adult content by enabling the “Restricted Mode” in the YouTube settings. This will filter out inappropriate content and make YouTube safer for kids.

Another way to keep your kids safe on Roku is to set up a PIN number. This PIN number will be required when adding new applications, preventing your kids from installing anything without your permission. You can find instructions on how to set up a PIN number on the Roku support website.

In conclusion, setting up parental controls on your Roku device is a simple process, but it is not enough to keep your kids safe. You also need to be vigilant about what your children are watching and teach them to use the device responsibly. By following these tips, you can make sure that your kids have a safe and enjoyable experience on Roku.
