9 Tips to Help You Master HBO GO and HBO Now Streaming
Control What Kids See While you might feel comfortable trusting your tablet to babysit your little ones with a few episodes of gentrified Sesame Street, you might be more hesitant to allow them to spend time in the oft-orgiastic world of Westeros. HBO understands your concerns.To that end, HBO includes a Kids Lock feature, which keeps tiny fingers and eyeballs confined to age-appropriate content and makes search unavailable. This function allows parents to hand their phone, tablet, or remote over to the little person in their life and feel confident that they won't be subjected to any of Tony Soprano's signature shirt-on trysts.To enable it on either HBO GO or HBO Now, tap the hamburger menu () in the top-left corner > Kids > tap the lock icon at the top of the screen. If you are using the lock for the first time, you will be asked to create a four-digit passcode; if you already have one, enter it in the pop-up screen.To break the lock and return to full debaucherous functionality, just tap the lock and enter your password again (in my experience, there can be a bit of a delay for the break to register, have some patience).On both services, you can also turn on full parental controls. Tap the hamburger menu and select Settings > Parental controls. You'll be asked to create and/or enter your four-digit PIN. You can then set age restrictions for TV content and movies on the main account or sub-accounts (Y, Y7, G, PG, 14, or MA). Controls are similar on the web.
