It is not only for personal use but also can be utilized in libraries, schools and other public institutions by the institutions’ system administrators. Besides, viewers who turn on Restricted Mode cannot see comments on videos. So how to enable restricted mode on different devices?
1.Click your profile picture.
2.Click Restricted Mode.
3.In the dialog box that appears, toggle Restricted Mode to on or off.
For Android app
1.Sign in to your account.
2.On the top right, tap More.
3.Select Settings >> General.
4.Turn Restricted mode on.
When Restricted Mode is turned on, whether the videos can be available will rely on video’s metadata, title, language used in the video as well as age restriction, which will be checked by automated system. But it is unavoidable that it will make mistakes sometimes. Simply filtering of YouTube videos may be far from enough. For those who want more universal settings and most comprehensive offerings out there, PanSpy is definitely a choice. It’s a paid service, but it monitors a child’s internet behaviors in real time. You can set time restrictions and block the app you want. Besides, it also lets you know if your kid is attempting to access a specific type of content which enables you to block it on the spot.
