1 Parental Controls
Parental Controls are features available on LG Smart TVs, that help parents reduce the risk of their children encountering unwanted or inappropriate content for their age or maturity level while watching TV or using internet apps.
Using Parental Controls is only an extra step in helping parents protect their children. Active, engaged parenting is essential in helping children develop good habits. Working with the children, talking to them and encouraging responsible behaviour is critical.
Smart TVs have become a point of convergence for all media and content sources, which allow us to enjoy all the entertainment from a single place. When it comes to configuring Parental Controls, it is important to understand the strengths and limitations that LG Smart TV features provide:
- They provide Parental Controls for TV input connectors, traditional live TV channels, such as antenna or cable, and internet apps, such as browsers or streaming services. Certain apps may provide their own additional Parental Controls that can vary from one app to another and must be configured separately.
- They do not provide Parental Controls to devices connected to TV inputs, such as: cable boxes, satellite receivers, gaming consoles, DVD, Blu-ray and other media players. If any of those devices provide such features, they will vary from one device to another and must be configured separately.
