With Samsung TV, you will be able to control the content that is available for your kids. There are several controls in place, such as locking down app so children cannot access them or Parental control within certain apps. Read on to find out more. 

Lock Apps

Certain apps on your TV may be geared towards adults or contain programs you don’t want your child to watch. You can lock the app so you can still use it by entering a PIN, but your child will not be able to access it.

 

Navigate to APPS, and then select Settings.

Select an app to lock or unlock, and then select Lock/Unlock.

Enter the PIN – the default PIN is “0000”, but you should change it so your children can’t guess it.

 

Change the PIN by navigating to and selecting Settings > General, and then selecting System Manager > Change PIN.

Parental Control Options in various apps

With Netflix, you can set up a kid's profile in the app and set a PIN to restrict movies and TV shows based on their rating.

 

HBO Go and Prime Video also offer the ability to set a PIN to restrict movies and shows from being played based on their rating.
