Today, Netflix announced plans to release a new parental controls feature. This feature will help us better manage what our kids are watching.
While parents can already put content above a specific maturity level, the new feature will require a pin for certain TV shows and movies. With this feature, parents will not have to block complete levels of content, and instead can prevent certain titles from being seen by our children. In addition to this new feature, maturity level ratings will be displayed when a new title is played.
This new parental control change comes after many companies strive to become more appropriate for children.
Expect this new feature to become active in the next couple of months.
Parents, how do you feel about this new feature? Do you think it will help us protect our children from harmful content? Let me know in the comments below.
This is what the new feature will look like on your parental controls screen (The "Restrict Specific Titles" is the new feature):
