It’s been seven months or so since YouTube Kids was launched in the United States, and so far, if parents outside the US wanted to let their kids browse on YouTube, they had to be there to check what their child was watching. Cue YouTube Kids – the app that will give them some pease of mind. Along with custom content that will be liked more by kids in these countries it also has some safety features.
If you like our stories, there is an easy way to stay updated:
Parents have been given some assurance this time following concerns that some content and some ads that are being served are not right for children. Parents are now able to deactivate “search” for their kids. This minimises the ability for kids to find something they were not supposed to, as the only content available is the featured videos.
Parents are also given a timer to shut down the app at a certain time as well as the ability to set a password to stop kids from changing the app settings.
