Netflix is a streaming service that allows its members to watch a wide variety of award-winning TV shows, movies, documentaries, and more on thousands of internet-connected devices. It has revolutionized the way we watch television and films.

Netflix is rolling out a series of new tools that parents can use to filter what content their kids see while using the service, including the ability to remove titles entirely.

To choose the types of TV shows and movies your kids can watch, you can manage their profiles individually or create a profile with the Netflix Kids experience with titles just for kids.
