Parents concerned over what their child watches on YouTube will have a new option to supervise what videos they watch.
YouTube will launch a new setting that allows children under the age of 13 to access the platform through a supervised Google account set up by their parents.
The beta version will launch in the coming months, according to YouTube.
The tool has three settings with different degrees of restrictions. The most restrictive mode, called “Explore”, is for children over the age of nine and ready to transfer from YouTube Kids to the regular website. This setting allows children to watch vlogs, tutorials, gaming videos, music clips, news, educational content and more.
