YouTube to offer supervised accounts for kids

SAN BRUNO, Calif. (CNN) — The popular video site, YouTube is giving parents more control over what their kids watch.

The site is launching three new settings as a part of YouTube’s “Supervised Experiences.” The new filters will allow parents to restrict what videos their kids can access on the platform.

These features are more geared towards parents of tweens and teens, as it focuses on content outside of the YouTube Kids app.

In order to access these new settings, parents must set up supervised accounts for their children first.

YouTube says a beta version of these new filters will launch in the next few months.
