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:
Create up to eight kid profiles, each with their own viewing preferences, video recommendations, and settings.
Select collections of channels on a variety of subjects by trusted partners and YouTube Kids.
PARENT APPROVED CONTENT:
Make sure you’re in control of what your kids watch and handpick the videos, channels, and collections of channels they can see.
As your little ones grow and develop you have the option to open up new content appropriate for 8-12 year olds. Simply enable this option when creating a new profile or update an already existing one. This setting allows kids to watch popular music and gaming videos from creators like Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Rosanna Pansino, Roman Atwood, Dan TDM, GloZell, Kurt Hugo Schneider, Dude Perfect, Brooklyn & Bailey, Minecraft, and many more.
We work hard to make videos in the app family friendly, but no system is perfect. It’s always possible that you may find something you don’t want your child to watch. These videos may contain some explicit language and imagery, violence and suggestive content.
The “Younger” version includes videos from Thomas the Tank Engine, Dreamworks TV, Talking Tom, The Little Bus Tayo, Angry Birds, Monster High, DC Kids, and many more. With a wide selection of sing-alongs and age appropriate learning videos, this experience is perfect for preschool to school aged little ones.

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.
Alert us immediately by reporting videos that shouldn’t be in the app. The video will be sent to us for fast review.
Turn search on so kids can access more videos. Turn search off for a more contained experience by limiting the experience to channels that have been verified by YouTube Kids.
Set up a timer to put limits on how long your kids can play with the app.
Keep tabs on what your kids are watching in the app.
