BUILT FOR FAMILIES
Everyone loves movies and TV, and nothing gets kids excited like watching their favorite characters embark on a new adventure. Whether you’re watching together as a family or letting the kids watch on their own, Kids Mode lets you browse and enjoy all the family-friendly titles in your collection while keeping any age-inappropriate content out.
A LIBRARY OF THEIR OWN
As you learned in our earlier post here, we’re working with Common Sense Media to provide accurate, in-depth movie reviews to help inform your decisions on what your kids watch. Common Sense Media also provides minimum age recommendations, so you know which movies are right based on your kid’(s) age(s).
Kids Mode is a feature powered by these CSM age recommendations that lets you curate your collection to browse only the titles in your library that fit the age range you set. In Kids Mode, you can browse together for a family movie night title or let the kids watch on their favorite devices and only the age-appropriate titles will be viewable and watchable. Everything else will be invisible until you exit Kids Mode.
You also have the option to include free titles that fit your designated age range, and the ads that play during free titles are also screened to ensure age appropriateness. Your kids can search our thousands of free titles for fun new movies and TV without you worrying about any age-inappropriate content sneaking through.
SAFE, SECURE, AND LOCKED WITH A PIN
To make sure your kids are browsing and watching only the age-appropriate content in your library, set an optional 4-digit PIN to restrict anyone from exiting Kids Mode. Kids Mode settings are separate on each device you use, so you can enable the PIN protection only on the devices where you need it.
With PIN protection, you can rest easy knowing your kids have the freedom to browse and play their favorite titles without accessing anything outside the designated age range or outside of your collection, even when they’re navigating without your help. If you forget your PIN while using Kids Mode on a mobile device, simply entering your Vudu password will allow you to exit Kids Mode.
LESS WORRYING, MORE WATCHING
Kids Mode is currently available on iOS/Android devices, Samsung TVs, Vizio TVs, LG TVs, Roku, and Xbox One. Because Kids Mode is set-up separately on each device, you can use it where you need it and ignore it where you don’t. Once Kids Mode is set up, you can easily toggle back and forth between Kids Mode and normal Vudu browsing by using the Kids and User buttons when you first enter settings.
Watching together, letting the kids make their own choices, and discovering free family entertainment just got safer and easier thanks to Kids Mode. Find answers to all of your Kids Mode related questions here, and get more info on all our helpful new family features here.
