Safer online experience for children We work hard to keep the videos on YouTube Kids family-friendly and use a mix of automated filters built by our engineering teams, human review and feedback from parents to protect our youngest users online. But no system is perfect and inappropriate videos can slip through, so we're constantly working to improve our safeguards and offer more features to help parents create the right experience for their families. You can also customise your family's experience: you can turn search on or off while using YouTube Kids on TV. Or check your child's watch history with the 'Watch it Again' feature.
Customise your child's experience with individual profiles Create individual experiences as unique as your children on our mobile app and use them on your TV or on the web. First, download YouTube Kids from the iOS App Store or Google Play store on a mobile or tablet device, then log in to create profiles. Every profile has its own viewing preferences, video recommendations and settings. Select an age category that fits your child: 'Preschool' (4 and under), 'Younger' (5–8) or 'Older' (9+), or choose 'Approved Content Only' mode.
If you select 'Approved Content Only' you can hand-pick the videos, channels and/or collections that you've approved for your child to watch. In this mode, searching for videos is unavailable. Approved videos must first be selected on your mobile or tablet device. Once chosen, they will be reflected on all your devices with YouTube Kids.
All kinds of videos for all kinds of children Our library is filled with family-friendly videos on all different topics, igniting your children's inner creativity and playfulness. It's everything from their favourite shows and music to learning how to build a model volcano (or make slime ;-), and everything in between.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I love you too and by simply selecting "no explicit" I don't get all the garbage people want to fire in my direction. The fact that there is an even safer place for your children to browse it is reassuring to parents who with a little advice can set up a child's laptop or tablet to only show safe content
