How to setup Parental controls in the Google Play Store

How to Take an App Purchase Refund from Google Play Store?

While you can take complete control over your kids’ smartphone using Google Link app, it is quite a tricky process. Alternatively, put age restrictions on the apps and games shown in the Google Play store or prevent any unauthorized purchases from your kids. Google Play Store comes with a built-in parental control option that not only filters the app and games as per the set guidelines. Here is how you can activate Parental controls on the Google Play Store:

Step 1: Open Google Play Store.

Step 2: Tap on the menu bar from the top left.

Step 3: Go to settings.

Step 4: Tap on the Parental controls option.

Step 5: To turn it on, you will need to set up a PIN code so that your kids won’t be able to turn it off.

Step 6: You’ll have to set content restrictions for apps & games. To do this, tap on the Apps & games option and choose the age rating that you want to see in the Play Store.

Step 7: Repeat the same for Films and Music and tap on Save in every section.

After you have performed all these steps, Google Play Store will only show your child all the content with the specified ratings and even if they try to install any app by searching it on Google, they will require the PIN to do that.
