Without a doubt, Youtube has become a true television for many children. Faced with this, they end up being vulnerable to dangerous content. Thinking about it, Google decided to launch Youtube Kids. Google has thought that using this application, children only see content dedicated to them without the risk of seeing something inappropriate.
Properly configured, YouTube Kids allows parents or guardians to limit the time that the child can use the app. At the end of the established time, the application closes automatically, and even if the child tries to reopen it again, he will be asked for a password. Find out how to set up YouTube Kids by reading below.
- First, download the app from the Play Store, then open it;
- At the opening, enter your year of birth. Then enter your Google account and create a profile with the child’s name;
- When you get to the tab “turn search on or off”, some attention is required. Within the application, you can choose whether to allow the child to search for other content or not. When you leave the option disabled, video suggestions from the application will continue to be displayed;
- By following these steps, the child can already use the app without problems and no longer have to worry about seeing inappropriate content.
Notice that you can add other profiles in the same application. When you access the profile, the homepage will open, and a plethora of videos suitable for children will appear. In addition, at the top there are some tabs where you can access music videos, series, cartoons and instructional videos.
