YouTube apps bypass Web Safe blocking

I want to limit my children from accessing YouTube via my V6 box.

I have already added a parental pin to channel via the usual way which stops them getting access via the TV guide, however it is possible to still get on to YouTube by the link at the bottom of "My Shows" without needing the parental pin.

Is it possible to remove this link or lock it so my children cannot access it?

Hi Boroboy_100_


Thanks for your post and welcome to our community. 

I'm really sorry you're having some issues with the access to YouTube via your V6 box. 


YouTube has existing parental controls which can be turned on in the app and which help users avoid most inappropriate content. You can turn on these settings by signing in through the app however I'm afraid there are no plans to currently introduce a pin to access YouTube via the app so there are instances where users can still access YouTube. I'm afraid we also have no plans to remove the link. 

I can only apologise for any upset this may cause and if this does change in the future we'll make sure this is communicated.

Thanks for the reply when if it's not what I want to hear.

Can I ask why it is possible to PIN lock access via the channel guide but not the app?

We don't currently require pins to get into any of our apps as we don't have the functionality, however some apps have pins after you get into the app for example Slots.

Inside the Youtube app you can Activate Parental Controls

 

Hope this helps.
