Netflix has today revealed new and improved control on its services to help parents, guardians, and elders to make the right viewing decisions for their families. These controls can be added to the Netflix profile by going to account settings on a laptop or a mobile browser.
Parents can now PIN protects individual profiles to prevent kids from using them. They can tailor their kid’s Netflix experience by filtering out titles that are not appropriate for their age.
Now parents can remove the individual series or films by title. When the filter is being used, the blocked title won’t show up anywhere in that profile. The settings of each profile can be easily reviewed using the profile and parental controls hub within the account settings.
The new parental controls allow you to see what kids have been watching within the profile created for them and turn off autoplay of episodes in the kid profiles.
Lastly, parents will be able to access and make these changes from anywhere. You can also make modifications on any connected web device which uses Netflix, such as desktop, laptop, and mobile web browser.
Netflix has also revealed that Mighty Little Bheem from India is the most watches preschool series on the platform across the globe. It is also the second most-watched kid’s series for Netflix across the globe.

Michelle Parsons, Kids Product Manager, Netflix said, “Choice and control have always been important for our members, especially parents. We hope that these improved controls will help parents make the right choices for their families.”
