Streaming subscriptions like Netflix have become exceedingly popular. More and more homes are turning away from traditional cable services in favor of streaming services. But not every show on Netflix is family friendly. Here’s how to control what your family has access to.

Open your Netflix account in a web browser.

  1. Log into your account.

  1. There are two options for setting parental controls: Account Level Settings in which a PIN is needed for access, and Profile Level Settings in which controls are set for specific user profiles.

Choose which option you want to use.

  1. With Account Level Settings, you can set a 4 digit PIN to restrict access to shows and movies by maturity rating, or for specific shows and movies.

  1. With Profile Level Settings, you can select the appropriate maturity rating for each member of the family. They will only be able to access shows and movies within those restrictions.
