We've put a PIN on Youtube channel which works when typing in the channel number or scrolling down the channel list. However we found our child watching Youtube as by chance she found out she was able to access it from the list of channels in the 'search and discover' menu. How do remove a channel from this menu or ensure the PIN always works on this channel?
Search & discover is a bit more problematic as it has nothing to do with channels. Search & discover is a word search tool that picks up content not only from the Electronic Programme Guide, but from the installed apps as well. The YouTube “channel” on the box is just a link to the YouTube app, which can be accessed direct in the same way as the BBC iPlayer app can.
From what I have heard there should be parental controls within the app itself that stop inappropriate content.
