Description & Details


Supporting a safe and fun environment for your child’s gaming experience.

Nintendo Switch Parental Controls™ is a free app for smart devices to keep you engaged with your family's gaming activities on Nintendo Switch.
◆ A Nintendo Switch console with the latest available system version is required to use this app.

This is recommended for people worried about things such as:
1. Is my child spending too much time playing games?
2. What kind of games is my child playing?
3. Are the games my child is playing age-appropriate?

Below are three special features of the Nintendo Switch Parental Controls app:
1. Monitor play time on your console.
Set a play-time limit and the console will notify users that the time limit has been reached.
Parents and guardians can check the Nintendo Switch Parental Controls app to see if the time limit has been followed.
It is also possible to suspend gameplay automatically when the play-time limit is reached.

2. Check up on your console's gameplay.
The summary function allows you to easily see what games have been played on the console recently and how much time was spent playing each day.
View daily reports and monthly summaries of play activity. If you choose to receive push notifications, you'll be notified when a new monthly summary is available.
It's an easy way to see what kind of games your family is interested in.

3. Restrict console features.
Nintendo Switch functions can be restricted to prevent the console from playing games above a certain age rating.

Attention:
◆ An Internet connection is required to use this app. Cellular data may be used. A Nintendo Account (for ages 18 and up) is also required.
◆ Restrictions to Nintendo eShop purchases can be set from Nintendo Account settings.
◆ Your use of this app is subject to the Nintendo Account User Agreement available at support.nintendo.com.
◆ In order to make use of all of the features and settings available in the Nintendo Switch Parental Controls app, all registered Nintendo Switch consoles need to be using the latest system version.

  • Nintendo Switch Parental Controls app let's you limit non-existent online gaming

    (10 months ago)

    The Nintendo Switch officially gets released tomorrow, but Nintendo is prepping by releasing the Switch Parental Controls app for both Android and iOS users. The app does much what you'd expect allowing parents to limit how long kids can play games on any given day, limit what age rating games can be and more. However, the video that accompanies the release is very interesting to say the least...

The bedtime timer is a lifesaver for our special needs kid but the play limits are not very useful. It would be awesome if you could add a "Timeout" button that could be triggered manually in the app. Basically just the same functionality as the bedtime timer (with the countdown from 5 minutes) but you can trigger it whenever you want in the app and then set how long it stays off. This would be much more useful than the play limits IMO. Thanks for considering.
Tenshi 3
Needs separate settings for different kids. An hour per kid is better than three total hours. If the oldest kid does not share, he will take away the other kids' play time. Also, a default setting for new accounts should be introduced. And a distribution of play time over the day would be an improvement (as Microsoft has for the Windows platform). It makes no sense to allow a kid to resume playing at 06:00h, if you want it to only play in the afternoon.
Brian 5
Very useful app when I'm out and get a call that the kids aren't behaving or needs to get off the device. I can set time limits and such, but it would be awesome if there are time limits between different kids. Great idea to do parental control separated from the console via smartphone. It blows my mind sometimes. Thank you Nintendo and an even higher Thanks to the developers. ^-^
Steve 3
This app would be so much better if you could have a PIN for the parents accounts and different time limits for multiple profiles. This app is kind of pointless for families with more than one child. I really need to PIN protect my account too so my kids can't play under mine and mess with my saves.
dave 2
Needs remote control and ability to lock from phone. Needs ability to see multiple profiles up with different time limits. Needs each profile to have it's own pin. If you make these essential changes I would give 5 stars. Right now this feels more like an afterthought.
Kohi 5
I use it to keep track of all the little details on my switch, which games, how much, etc. Great info with a lot of detail and control over the console. I haven't found this feature, but if it could have a remote lock for the console, in case of theft. That would be a very useful feature and would make the app that much more useful.
Tiffany 1
App is useless. I can't control remotely and it doesnt count just play time but includes time spent on the menu, etc. Nintendo needs to look up the Screen time parental controls app and use that as an model for this app.
Greg 3
Easy to use and setup, however this app falls a little short with it's features. Needs a way to have per profile limitations and a little more information on what the usage is, such as start and stop times. It would also be nice to set time windows per profile.
William 4
*update* increased rating from 2 stars to 4, now that you can monitor usage per profile. Still waiting on ability to set restrictions per profile.* The app can only report and control console wide. You can't setup individual restrictions per user nor get reports per user. Really defeats the purpose for families. Hoping this gets a resolution
Dwayne 3
Timer is great, but that's about it. Spotty tracking of game usage. So far, it hasn't seemed to notice Skyrim playtime even though it noticed parental controls being unlocked. Also, I think separate pins per user would be awesome.
Philip 1
Missing core feature of limiting play time per player. Can only apply one overall limit. Useless with multiple kids and one that hogs the device. Causes more arguments than it resolves. Fix this and I'll happily re rate.
