Channel hosting on Youtube

  • 07 Jun, 2018

Hosting YouTube channels is in vogue. Children of all age groups are glued to their phones and always ready to explore the unexplored. Every child wants to be a YouTuber like Evan Tube who is the highest paid youTuber. The concern arises in parents how safe is it to expose children to the ocean of different videos and contents on YouTube. There are tons and tons of useful, educative, informative, creative, videos which children can watch and also learn through them but what about the unwanted stuff. How to control those? What a child will watch can be easily controlled by the parental control on YouTube which is called the Safety Mode on the web browser or the Restricted Mode in the App. Once the safety mode is activated the browser uses age-restriction settings to filter the videos unsuitable for children YouTube’s Safety mode is also connected to Google’s SafeSearch, so when one turns on the Safety mode in YouTube one is automatically activating the SafeSearch feature in Google.

How to enable YouTube’s safety mode on your web browser:

  1. Launch a browser window and type in the web address bar.
  2. Click the blue Sign In button in the top right corner of the screen and follow the prompts to sign in. Once YouTube loads, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click the Safety button.
  3. Click On and then click the Save button.  To lock these changes so no one can change them without your password, click “Lock safety mode on this browser.” You’ll be prompted to enter your password. Once that information is entered, the feature is locked and can only be unlocked by entering your password again.
