Sky TV owners must try hidden mode with great advantage – it is so handy for millions of users
Check your Sky TV today – there’s a hidden mode millions need to know about.
It solves one of the biggest problems Sky TV customers can face.
The feature is called Kids Safe Mode and it can help prevent your kids from watching anything shady.
The mode automatically blocks inappropriate content across the Sky ecosystem.
And you can edit your parental controls to be specific about what you allow or block.
First you need to set up a PIN for your Sky Q box.
A PIN can be very useful as it allows you to protect rated shows and purchases.
Also, adult content is hidden by default.
You can easily pick and choose any of the settings.
Go to Start > Settings and then search for Parents.
Now enter a PIN and select Family which allows you to edit your settings.
You can PIN protect specific shows based on their rating in Ratings.
And there is even an option to block access to various features and apps.
These include online video, YouTube and Vevo.
Importantly, you can use your PIN to turn Safe Mode for kids on or off.
Activation is quick and easy, giving you peace of mind.
If you activate it, your Sky box will be strictly restricted to TV shows and films rated as suitable for children under 12 years of age.
To turn Safe Mode for kids on or off, go to Home > Kids.
Now go into safe mode and then enter your PIN to adjust the settings.
It’s a great idea, especially if you need to leave the living room for a while – or if you’re installing Sky TV in the children’s room.
