  • Go to manage profiles
  • Select create a new profile
  • Tick the box that says, child

In this profile, one can only watch content, which is children friendly (Children aged above 7).

A children profile offers a simplified UI and they will not be able to change the settings of the account. If your child is a bit older, then you can change the maturity settings to 13+ or 16+, which will then show the appropriate content.

To do the same, go to accounts > profiles and parental control > profile lock and set up a new pin code. After setting the code, you will only be able to access this profile by entering the code.
