Using Parental Controls on Nintendo Devices

Parental Controls on Nintendo devices allow you to manage what your child can and cannot do on their device. Along with restricting games by age rating, you can manage access to Nintendo Network ID settings, internet and wireless features, Nintendo eShop purchases, software and data transfer features, and more.

Setting up Parental Controls is easy, and is restricted by a 4-digit PIN which you can use to make changes to the settings at any time. If your PIN is ever forgotten, our consumer service can help you retrieve it.

The links below provide detailed Parental Controls management and setup information.
