Nintendo offers a free Nintendo Switch™ Parental Controls smart device app that allows users to manage parental controls settings for their Nintendo Switch console from their mobile devices. When enabled, parental controls for the Nintendo Switch system can prevent children from making purchases on their system or from the Nintendo website as well as set time limits for how long or how late the system can be used. Nintendo Switch parental controls also provide parents with the ability to restrict online communication with others, restrict games based on ESRB rating and to restrict viewing of content on the Nintendo eShop, among other things.
