How to Set Up Hulu Parental Controls

Hulu is a subscription streaming service that offers popular TV shows, original movies, animated series, and more! While Hulu does offer movies and shows that are suitable for kids, it also has a fair amount of adult content. For this reason, you may want to create kid profiles for your children.

Create a Kid Profile

To limit the type of movies and shows your children can watch on your Hulu account, create a kid’s profile. Kids profiles only have access to Hulu’s Kids Hub, which has a variety of movies and shows that are appropriate for kids. To create a kid’s profile:

  1. Go to your Hulu account
  2. Select “(+) Add Profile”
  3. Fill out the information for the new profile and select “Kids Mode”

Note: you can turn on Kid’s Mode for an existing Hulu profile by editing the profile’s settings.

Use PIN Protection to Lock Adult Profiles

PIN Protection allows parents to lock their profiles with a numbered passcode so that kids can’t use your profile to watch your shows and movies. Your PIN will also be required to access any non-kid profile. To create a PIN:

  1. Go to your Hulu account
  2. Select “Manage Profiles”
  3. Turn the toggle for “Turn on PIN Protection” on
  4. Enter in your Hulu account password
  5. Enter in your PIN
