How to Set Up Disney+ Parental Controls

Disney Plus (Disney+) is a subscription streaming service with access to Disney’s classic movies, MARVEL shows, Pixar movies, National Geographic, and more! Depending on the age of your children, you may want to set up parental controls on your Disney+ account.

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”
