Setting up Parental Controls

How can I set up parental controls on my console/PC/mobile?

The most common parental control features include managing your child’s play time (setting time limits, scheduling when they are allowed to play), restricting and/or monitoring the type of content they can access and restricting and/or monitoring online features (including chat and online payments).

Since the parental controls are different for each console, we recommend that you visit the page corresponding to your console below:
