How Do I Block Videos on the YouTube Kids App?
In order to block videos on the YT Kids app, you need to sign into your own YouTube account on the app. If you click the lock at the bottom of the app you will access the “Grown-ups Only” section. You are able to create your own passcode if your child knows how to read so that she can’t access this section. Once you receive the parental consent email and are signed in you can block videos. If you’re on the homescreen you simply tap the 3 dots on a video and it allows you to block that video or the channel. You can also do the same thing when watching a video to block it. Blocking a video or channel means that your child will no longer see that content in the app.
How Do I Report Videos on the YouTube Kids App?
You should report any inappropriate videos you see in the YT Kids app. The app is meant to be family friendly so let’s help it be the way it’s supposed to be. Also when playing a video tap the 3 dots to report or block the video. Reporting a video will send it to YouTube for review and will be removed if it is found inappropriate.
How Do I Turn Search Off on the YouTube Kids App?
Turning the search off makes sure that your child can only watch videos on the homescreen. The homescreen includes videos selected by the app and videos the app recommends based on what has been watched. To turn off the search option you simply go to the settings and switch the search to off. Settings can be found after tapping the lock at the bottom of the screen and entering in the passcode.
