How to Set Up Disney+ Parental Controls

Online Exploitation Is Turning Children Into Porn

Disney Plus (Disney+) is a subscription streaming service with access to Disney’s classic movies, MARVEL, Pixar movies, National Geographic, and more. To learn about the parental control options on Disney+, select a topic:


Create a Kid’s Profile

A Disney+ kid profile will only display and allow movie options with a general audience rating (“Rated G”). To create a kid profile:

  1. Go to your Disney+ account
  2. Select “Add Profile”
  3. Choose a graphic icon for the profile
  4. Type in a profile name
  5. Toggle “Kids Profile” on
  6. Select Save

Lock Adult Profiles with a PIN

To keep children and others on your Disney+ account from using your profile, you can lock your profile via a 4-digit PIN. To set a PIN for a profile:

  1. Go to your Disney+ account
  2. Select your profile
  3. Under Parental Controls, select “Profile PIN”
  4. Enter your Disney+ password and select “Continue”
  5. Enter your profile PIN and select “Save”

Choose a Content Rating Limit for Profiles

You can choose a content rating limit for each profile on your Disney+ account! After you select a content rating limit, only shows and movies at or below that rating can be searched for and watched. To select a content rating limit for a profile:

  1. Go to your Disney+ account
  2. Choose the profile you’d like to set content ratings for
  3. Under Parental Controls, select “Content Rating”
  4. Enter your Disney+ password and select “Continue”
  5. Select a content rating and select “Save”

Note: You cannot adjust the content rating limit for a kid’s profile because they’re automatically set at general audience.

Password-Protect the Ability to Make New Profiles

To restrict children and other account users from creating new profiles, you can password-protect the ability to make new profiles. Disney+ calls this feature “Restrict Profile Creation.” To enable this feature:

  1. Go to your Disney+ account
  2. Select “Settings”
  3. Under Settings, toggle on “Restrict Profile Creation”
  4. Enter your Disney+ password and select “Continue”
