Nintendo Switch™ Parental Controls

Nintendo Switch Parental Controls™ is a free app for smart devices to keep you engaged with your family's gaming activities on Nintendo Switch.

A Nintendo Switch console with the latest available system version is required to use this app.

This is recommended for people worried about things such as:

  1. Is my child spending too much time playing games?
  2. What kind of games is my child playing?
  3. Are the games my child is playing age-appropriate?

Below are three special features of the Nintendo Switch Parental Controls app:

1. Monitor play time on your console.

  • Set a play-time limit and the console will notify users that the time limit has been reached.
  • Parents and guardians can check the Nintendo Switch Parental Controls app to see if the time limit has been followed.
  • It is also possible to suspend gameplay automatically when the play-time limit is reached.

2. Check up on your console's gameplay.

  • The summary function allows you to easily see what games have been played on the console recently and how much time was spent playing each day.
  • View daily reports and monthly summaries of play activity. If you choose to receive push notifications, you'll be notified when a new monthly summary is available.
  • It's an easy way to see what kind of games your family is interested in.

3. Restrict console features.

  • Nintendo Switch functions can be restricted to prevent the console from playing games above a certain age rating.
