Re: Locking youtube

Hi Bean234,

 

Welcome to the Community!

 

Sorry to hear you're having trouble with this.

 

Unfortunately, there is currently no way to block the YouTube app entirely. You can, however, block certain content within the app to maintain your child's safety while using it.

 

In the YouTube app, go to the settings and select Settings, then enable Restricted Mode.

 

Hope this Helps Smiley Very Happy

 

Josh

Re: Locking youtube

I asked about this on this forum about 6 weeks ago and was told that it was removed to improve performance and I have been waiting ever since for further information.

I have not noticed any type of improvement so I think the ability to lock the youtube app be brought back. It won't make a difference.

Many thanks for your message, I hope you're well.

 

We're always striving to give the best experience and appreciate any feedback, the YouTube lock is something we're still working on and whilst I know this isn't the answer you may be looking for, once we do have any new information we'll be sure to let everyone know.

Re: Locking youtube

YouTube being a place which (from what I understand) only 13 y/o plus should be using. Don't you think that it's irresponsible of those involved, to have removed such a lock from a family entertainment system??

Microsoft, for example, have a brilliant age restriction system in place on the Xbox One game system.

Why on earth would anyone think it's safe for YouTube to be free to use for all ages??
Do these people not have children??
How does someone make an official complaint about this?
Seriously?
