Smart TV’s are appearing in homes everywhere. You might have one. We do. I know that I don’t need to tell you that they are internet enabled. We can stream content through services like Netflix, use apps like YouTube, access social media accounts like Facebook, download and play games on the big screen and talk to family and friends with Skype – all from our living room.
Great! So many options at our fingertips! But now I want you to consider what all of this wonderful functionality really means. It means that we have another device in our home that can potentially expose our kids to inappropriate content.
Luckily, there are a few steps that we can take.
Please note that the setup of most parental control settings will require you to create a 4 digit code. Do not use your birthday, a family member’s birthday or a pet’s birthday – the kids will guess it! And don’t worry. If you need to access content that has been restricted, you can do so by entering your 4 digit code but if you do make changes then don’t forget to go back and reset them to how they should be!
