Childproof your Netflix account by adjusting these settings

If you share your Netflix account with kids, there are probably more than a couple of titles you’d rather they didn’t watch. Last year, the popular streaming service released an update that allows you to filter kids’ shows by title and audience age group. For added security, you can also protect your Netflix profile with a four-digit personal identification number to prevent children from accessing age-inappropriate content.

Additionally, adult account owners can see a full viewing history on a child’s profile and turn off autoplay of episodes. To review the settings for each profile, you can go to the Profile and parental controls hub within your account settings.
