How to Set Up Disney Plus Parental Controls

Disney Plus, Disney’s subscription-based streaming service, was released late fall 2019. Subscribers can access movies and shows from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic, 20th Century Fox, and original programming exclusive to Disney Plus.


Currently, Disney Plus does not have very many parental control options. Users have the ability to create individual profiles for each family member. You have the ability to designate a profile as a “Kids Profile,” which allows the child to only access content rated G, TV-Y, TV-Y7/Y7-FV, or TV-G. However, the main issue with Disney Plus is that, unlike its competitors, Disney Plus does not require a password or PIN when switching to another user’s profile, allowing children to access mature content by simply clicking over to a guardian’s profile.

How to Create a Kids Profile

In order to create a Kids Profile, you must first create a regular profile. After that is complete:

  1. Tap on the existing profile.

  2. Select Edit Profiles.

  3. Select Add Profile.

  4. Select an image for the new profile.

  5. Add a Profile Name.

  6. Toggle Kids Profile.

  7. Click Save.
