What is a supervised experience on YouTube?

A supervised experience on YouTube is a parent-managed version of regular YouTube and YouTube Music for children under 13 (or relevant age in their country/region).

With a supervised account, parents select a content setting that limits the videos and music children under 13 can find and play. Supervised accounts also change the features they can use, the default account settings, and the ads they see. Learn more about creating a supervised account.

Children with supervised accounts can access these apps and devices:
