Parental controls are designed to help protect children from inappropriate content they may come across online. These controls can be used to limit access to only age appropriate content, to set usage times and to monitor activity.
There are four main places you can find parental controls, and it can help to set up a combination of these:
Internet provider: you can set up filters to help block access to inappropriate content on any device that connects to your home wifi
Mobile operator: filters are often automatically set up on mobile contracts, but you can double-check with your provider
Devices: many devices have parental control settings, for example, to help restrict spending in apps or disable location functions
Online services: sites like BBC iPlayer and YouTube have parental control settings to help restrict access to inappropriate content
