Parental controls for Apple TV+ on the web

If a child is watching Apple TV+ on the web, you can limit what TV shows and movies are available by setting up parental controls.

  1. Go to and sign in with the account that you want to restrict.

  2. Tap or click the account icon in the upper-right corner, then tap or click Settings.

  3. Scroll to the Parental Controls section and tap or click the slider to turn on Content Restrictions.

  4. You'll be asked to create a 4-digit passcode. Enter a recovery email in case you ever forget this passcode.
