A world of learning and fun, made just for kids

We created YouTube Kids to make it safer and simpler for kids to explore the world through online video – from their favorite shows and music to learning how to build a model volcano (or make slime ;-), and everything in between. There’s also a whole suite of parental controls, so you can tailor the experience to your family’s needs.

A safer online experience for kids

We use a mix of filters, user feedback and human reviewers to keep the videos in YouTube Kids family friendly. But no system is perfect and inappropriate videos can slip through, so we’re constantly working to improve our safeguards and offer more features to help parents create the right experience for their families.

Get the scoop on all the control features available to you:

KID PROFILES:
Create up to eight kid profiles, each with their own viewing preferences, video recommendations, and settings.

BLOCKING:
Find a video or channel you don’t want your kid to watch? Block it to automatically remove it from all of your kids’ profiles.

VIDEO REPORTING:
Alert us immediately by reporting videos that shouldn’t be in the app. The video will be sent to us for fast review.

SEARCH CONTROL:
Turn search on so kids can access more videos. Turn search off for a more contained experience.

TIMER:
Set up a timer to put limits on how long your kids can play with the app.

WATCH HISTORY:
Keep tabs on what your kids are watching in the app.

WATCH ON TV:
Gather your family and enjoy YouTube Kids on select TVs

Other important information:
Parental setup is needed to ensure the best experience possible for your kid.

YouTube Kids contains paid ads in order to offer the app for free. Your kid may also see videos with commercial content from YouTube creators that are not paid ads.

Important information for parents with Family Link Google accounts.
You can create Google Accounts for kids under the age of 13 in Family Link. Your kids can sign into YouTube Kids with their Google Account. You can access parental settings in the Family Link app and enable an additional content level setting in our app. Opt into an “older” setting if you feel your kid is ready for less restricted videos. These videos may contain some explicit language and imagery, violence and suggestive content. In addition, this setting tries to exclude mature content, but no automated system is perfect and your kid may find content with nudity, highly offensive language, and extreme violence.

The Privacy Notice for Google Accounts created in Family Link describes our privacy practices when your kid uses YouTube Kids with their Google Account. When your kid uses YouTube Kids without signing into their Google Account, the YouTube Kids Privacy Notice applies.
