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 ◆ 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.



  • Security

    If you want a passcode on your switch to keep people off of it this is the app for you
  • Control time

    By MarkManningLivings
    This seems incomplete. I cannot control when my child plays the game only the amount of time they play on it.

  • Extra icons

    By nsidious
    How do I get rid of the extra icons that appeared in the app? There are only two users ... my son and I. The other two icons are from me connecting and disconnecting my account a few times. That is when the icons stayed on and created a new one.
  • Yep what I need

    To many hours gaming = tantrums. Controlling the kids hours and a bedtime shut down brings harmony back to our home. Thanks
  • Perfect

    I wouldn’t have bought the switch for my kid without this app. Thank you.
  • "Control" seems like it should have more options

    By RNE187
    I want to know what's being played and when for how long. I want to be able to lock it and unlock it at will from my phone. There are so many things I hoped I'd be able to do. So I end up doing them manually instead
  • Needs work

    Does not have control options
  • Great App!

    By CVskullgang
    I personally use this app to limit my own play time on switch not a child’s but it’s great for that none the less!
  • I expect more

    By PapaRaul1979
    I expect when the time is over the switch block the game but not and is better idea is the lock the Nintendo switch within pin code similar to the smartphone to preventing the child can play without permission of you parents
