There is content for everyone on YouTube, but that does not mean all content is safe to watch. For example, if you have kids, you may want to enable YouTube’s Restricted Mode.

Restricted Mode is a YouTube feature that allows parents and network administrators to block videos and channels that are unsafe to view. When you turn on the Restricted Mode on YouTube, it automatically blocks contains that were potentially unsafe to view.

It’s a great feature because it prevents you from viewing videos that contain hateful, sexual, bad language, or other dangerous content. Along with blocking the video, the feature also blocks the users from viewing or adding comments.

Unfortunately, this feature can sometimes block content that we want to watch. In such cases, it’s best to disable the YouTube Restricted Mode temporarily.
