Today’s generation tend to search the internet rigorously because adolescene is the age of curiosity. However, the internet is not entirely safe for kids as harmful content can be easily available. Seeing inappropriate content at a young age can seriously damage the mental wellbeing of kids. That’s why parents need to set up parental controls on Google or smart devices. Let’s discuss it in details.

How to enable parental controls on Google Chrome

The internet is host to all sorts of materials but it can contain harmful content as well. The good news is that parents can enable parental control in Google Chrome and prevent kids from visiting inappropriate sites. Here are some ways for setting up parental controls on Google Chrome.

Enable safe browsing

Google Chrome comes with advanced inbuilt features for safe browsing. It helps create a safer browsing environment to protect from malicious websites. Follow the steps to do it:

Alternatively, you can create a separate user account for your kid and sync it to your email account. This will help you be aware of your kid’s online activity for guidance. Steps to set up parental control are as follows:

Step 1. Open Chrome browser, click on the three-dot button on the upper-right corner and go to Settings

Step 2. Click on “Turn on Sync” and link your Gmail account with Chrome

Step 3. Click on the profile icon next to address and choose “Manage people” option

Step 4. Click “Add person” button and type the name for your kid’s new account. You also can add avatar image and click “Add” button.

Step 5. A new window will open for the account. Go to Settings and enable sync as explained above. Once done, you need to link the Gmail account to your child’s profile.

By creating child profile, you can monitor your kid’s internet activity on any of your devices. You can check the history, bookmarks, locations and other data by using the linked Gmail account. Creating a profile and linking to your Gmail account will work more effectively when your kid has a separate device. However, kids can disable the sync feature from settings.

How to enable parental controls on Google Play?

Music and Books: Select which you want to restrict downloads or purchases of explicit content.
