What Parents Need to Know About Netflix: 

Most of what parents should be aware of is covered in the short video above. Netflix streams movies, which of course means there are R and NC17 rated movies. Even if parents don’t set up a separate profile for a child, it’s critical to at least enable a pin number for movies over a certain rating. You can only do this through the Administrator’s account (the one paying for the service), by following the instructions in the above video.

March 2018 Update! Netflix has rolled out two important updates for parents:

  • Parents can now set a movie-specific 4-digit block for individual shows.
  • Rating information is now more prominently displayed on each movie.

You can read more about these changes in this article from TechCrunch.

Bottom Line for Parents:

With parental controls set, Netflix is fine, but without them, inappropriate, pornographic and potentially disturbing videos are everywhere.
