Netflix have just announced improvements to the parental control settings. You can already set a 4-digit PIN to allow access to titles over a certain age-range / maturity rating but what if there is something you don’t want your children watching even though it’s within their allowed maturity rating? Well, that’s what Netflix are adding – you can now PIN-protect specific shows regardless of maturity rating. The new feature appears to be rolling out gradually as I don’t have it on my UK account just yet.
If you head over to https://netflix.com/pin then you can set up your Parental Controls.
Another addition coming to Netflix is to show the maturity details at the start of a program for example when you start a movie it will show the maturity rating and the reason: “Rated PG; some mild, rude humour”
