How to Update Parental Controls & Set Content Ratings on Disney Plus

Knowing what our kids watch on TV or online is vital in preventing undesirable influences on them. There are various kinds of content both on television and on the Internet. A lot of this information can bring an inappropriate frame of mind to our children.

That is why parental controls and content ratings are valuable when choosing a streaming service. Disney Plus has Parental Controls and Content Ratings feature to enable you to filter content that appears on the screen when your kids are watching. Parental Controls allows you to set the age as a basis on what videos will be shown on Disney+.

The streaming service giant that brought us a manifold of memorable shows has various content ratings available for parents. TV-MA will show the full catalog on Disney Plus, including TV shows and movies with adult themes, violence, and curse words. TV-14 filters all this content but still add videos ideal for teens 14 and above. If your child is below that age, you can select PG 13 or PG, TV-PG.
