YouTube Kids is a children's video application where parents can control what their children watch. Available for free for iPhone (iOS) and Android smartphones, it has a locking system that carries a random numeric sequence that must be typed on the screen. In this way, it is possible to access the area exclusively for parents. However, children who already have interaction with numbers can easily assimilate the procedure. To avoid this problem, parents can configure the app with a custom four-digit unlock password.
Check out the following tutorial on how to set up a custom unlock password in the YouTube Kids app.
