About YouTube Kids

What is YouTube Kids?

YouTube Kids is the kid-friendly version of the popular YouTube app, featuring curated videos and more robust parental controls. YouTube Kids navigation and controls have been simplified for kid-friendly access with bigger buttons and easier scrolling. 


Featuring five categories of videos – Shows, Music, Learning, Explore, and Recommended Viewing – kids are able to find their favorites easily. The app can tailor its home screen for three main age groups: preschool, school age, and all kids. 


Children can still search the entire YouTube kids library, provided the option isn’t disable by parental control. Searches might return age-inappropriate content will return a prompt for the child to search for something else. 


Parents can also feel in control, with easy flagging for any videos they believe are inappropriate, and parental controls where they can turn off search capabilities and set a timer for screen time.

Is YouTube Kids safe for my kids?

YouTube Kids is safe for kids, but may require some parental supervision. There have been reports that counterfeit kids cartoons and other inappropriate videos have made their way into the app, so it's not as carefully curated as YouTube would like users to believe. 

The app features a lot of third party advertising, which can be frustrating for both kids and parents.
