    What Can I Block With Parental Controls on Nintendo Switch?

    Parents can use the on-device settings or the more extensive Nintendo Switch Parental Controls application (available for free on iOS and Android devices) to set various restrictions for Nintendo Switch. Additionally, restrictions on Nintendo eShop purchases can be set through a parent/guardian’s Nintendo Account.

    For help setting up or adjusting the Parental Controls for your Nintendo Switch console, click here.

    The following features or settings can be restricted through Parental Controls:

    Categories Nintendo Switch console Nintendo Switch Parental Controls
    (smart device app)
    Nintendo Account
    Software ratings (by age)
    Posting to social networks
    Free communication with others
    VR Mode (3D visuals)
    Set play time limits
    View play activity
    Set purchasing restrictions
    Disable friend suggestions
    Manage information shared with 3rd parties

    Additionally, the Parental Control PIN will automatically be required when restoring the console to factory settings and when adjusting some of the system settings (date/time changes, deleting a user, etc).
