Thankfully, Google has packed Android phones with plenty of options to protect teens.

And one of the most important things you can do is make sure your Google Play settings are in the best shape possible.

“When you set up parental controls on an Android device, you can limit what content can be downloaded or purchased from Google Play on that device based on maturity,” Google explained.

“Parental controls only apply to the Android device you added them to.

“If you have multiple users on one device, you can set up different parental controls for each person.”

When someone sets up parental controls, they create a PIN.

And that PIN locks those settings so they can’t be removed or changed without it.

So make sure you keep your PIN secret.

How to set up Google Play parental controls

First, make sure you’re using the device you want to set up parental controls on.

Then open the Google Play Store from where you would normally download apps.

Look for the profile icon in the top right and tap on it.

Then tap Settings > Family > Parental Controls.

Now turn on parental controls and create a PIN – but don’t share it with your kids.

Now you can choose the type of content you want to filter and how you want to restrict access.

Once you’ve saved your settings, they’ll be locked until someone re-enters the PIN and makes adjustments.
