A world of learning and fun, made just for kids
Google created YouTube Kids to make it safer and simpler for kids to explore the world through online video – from their favorite shows and music to learning how to build a model volcano. There’s also a whole suite of parental controls, so you can tailor the experience to your family’s needs.
A safer online experience for kids
Google uses a mix of filters, user feedback and human reviewers to keep the videos in YouTube Kids family friendly. 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.
KID PROFILES: Create up to eight kid profiles, each with their own viewing preferences, video recommendations, and settings.
PARENT APPROVED CONTENT: Choose this setting if you want to make sure you’re in control of what your kids watch and handpick the videos, channels, and collections of channels they can see. Search is disabled in this setting.
OLDER EXPERIENCE: As your little ones grow and develop you have the option to open up new content appropriate for 8-12 year olds. Simply enable this option when creating a new profile or update an already existing one. This setting allows kids to watch and search popular music and gaming videos from creators like Justin Bieber, Rosanna Pansino, Dan TDM, and many more.
We work hard to make videos in the app family friendly, but no system is perfect. It’s always possible that you may find something you don’t want your child to watch. Videos may contain some explicit language and imagery, violence and suggestive content.
YOUNGER EXPERIENCE: The “Younger” version includes videos from The Little Bus Tayo, Monster High, and more. With a range of sing-alongs and learning videos, this experience is perfect for preschool to school aged kids to search and find videos they love.

BLOCKING: Find a video or channel you don’t want your kid to watch? Block it to automatically remove it from all of your kids’ profiles.
VIDEO REPORTING: Alert us immediately by reporting videos that shouldn’t be in the app. The video will be sent for fast review.
TIMER: Set up a timer to put limits on how long your kids can watch.
WATCH HISTORY: Keep tabs on what your kids are watching.
