Whether you’re trying to keep mature content away from prying young eyes, making sure only certain users are able to make purchases, or want to allow certain purchases but not others, Vudu has easy to use parental controls to make your life and your family movie night easier.
Simply navigate to the Settings (or gear icon) section on your TV, mobile, or streaming device to set a 4-digit PIN and designate which program ratings you’d like to restrict for purchasing and viewing.
No more accidental purchases or uncomfortable discussions, and each device is controlled separately so you can customize permissions on the kids’ and family screens while leaving your personal devices free of restriction.
The interface and options vary a little by device and platform (no parental controls on web browsers at the moment, for example), but the end goal is the same: a worry-free viewing experience for you and your family.
Set up parental controls today and enjoy some streaming peace of mind.
