YouTube’s New Parental Control Feature
Parents can now protect their children from seeing inappropriate and violent content online with the new parental approval feature. The feature allows users to handpick content available to their children. Additionally, YouTube will soon release the ability for parents to modify their child’s YouTube Kids app to only display channels that have been reviewed by humans instead of algorithms. We would rather have children watch Brave Wilderness with Coyote Peterson hunting down a blue tongue skink than Homer from The Simpsons hunting down a Duff beer.

While this in-car delivery option does not require any additional hardware, customers must weigh the cost of privacy vs. convenience, a cost many consumers are already willing to make.
