Social Media Safety 101

Come learn some safety tips to use on your favorite apps!

Safety Tips for YouTube

YouTube just isn't for watching videos. You can create playlists for music to enjoy, watch movies and TV shows, or even post your own videos. There was ways to be safe when doing so! YouTube’s “Safety Mode” disables videos with age restrictions and/or mature content from showing up in a video search. However, the filter isn’t 100% accurate. Google uses community flagging and porn image detection to also help identify and hide inappropriate content. Safety Mode on YouTube doesn't remove content from the site, but does make it invisible to those who have Safety Mode enabled.

Great thing about Netflix is that you can create separate profiles on one account, which allows you to control what each user watches. You're able to put specific settings for each user's profile. For accessing parental control settings, you can only use a computer or mobile device. You're not able to use the Netflix app.
