Watching Content Higher than Parental Control Settings
Netflix accounts can have 1 or more profiles, and you can set parental controls on each profile to control access to content that exceeds a certain maturity level.
- For more information on profiles, see Using Profiles on Your Netflix Account.
- For information about parental controls, see Netflix Parental Controls.
To stream a Watch Instantly movie that has a maturity level higher than the parental controls you have set on your profile, you will need to adjust the controls on that profile to include that maturity level.
You can adjust the parental control setting from the Your Account page. Parental controls can only be set from a computer, and will apply to all devices that use that profile. Changes to parental controls can take up to 8 hours to take effect, although you may be able to sync your device more quickly if you restart the Netflix application.
Remember to reset the parental controls when you are done.
US Only: DVD customers can add discs with a higher maturity rating to the DVD queue without changing the parental control setting, but you will be prompted for your password each time.
