Netflix’s previous parental control measures were inadequate at best. While it added a broadcast platform in 2018 PIN codes To keep kids away from certain programs, the solution was applied to all the personal files in the account and adults had to constantly open their personal files every time they wanted to broadcast something.
That has now changed, as Netflix released a number of parental control updates. This time, individual profiles can be locked with Personal Identification Numbers (PINs), so not only do kids get away from adult programs, but other people’s eyes (roommates, for example) can also be kept out of your Netflix profile.
Adding a PIN to your profile has two benefits according to Netflix: It will prevent the platform’s algorithm from recommending content based on someone else’s viewing options if everyone uses the same profile and you can continue where you left off on a movie or TV show. the ring .
To add a PIN code to your profile
Setting up a PIN for individual profiles is easy, although there are some steps you need to follow to do this. You can also configure this via the Netflix streaming site in a web browser – you can’t do this via the mobile app (Android or iOS), at least not at this time.
You also need to remember your account password to do this. To set a PIN:
- Log in to your Netflix account
- Select the profile you want to lock
- Click “Account” from the dropdown menu below the profile in the upper right corner
- Scroll down to the Profile & Parental Controls section and select the appropriate profile
- Click “Change” next to “Lock your profile” and you will be taken to another page
- Enter your account password
- Markera rutan “Lock this profile by creating a 4-digit PIN.”
- Enter your PIN and save it.
Fine mesh filter
Adding an individual account PIN isn’t the only update that Netflix has launched to improve parental control – parents will now be able to use filters to filter inappropriate content based on age and country.
This allows users to individually remove series and movies from the Netflix Kids experience – so that your five-year-old doesn’t accidentally watch a John Wick movie or an episode of The Witcher, or even watch series like Stranger Things that push the boundaries a little.
You will also be able to track what your kids watched through their profiles and turn off automatic videos as well. All of this is also available in the “Profile and parental controls” section.
