Setting up parental controls on the PS4
Games like Killzone, Call of Duty, and Assassin's Creed will be some of the bestselling titles on the PlayStation 4. However, they aren't appropriate for all ages.
Luckily, Sony has included numerous parental controls to prevent kids from accessing certain content features in game.
From the console's main menu, tap Up arrow, and scroll over to Settings, and then click on Parental Controls.
Here, you will be presented with options for controlling applications, Blu-Ray in DVD playback,
access to the web browser, and restricting the ability to log in as a new user.
Sony uses a scale from 1 to 11 for blocking games and Blu-Ray movies.
Setting the system to level 1 will prevent nearly all games and movies, even the game, Knack, which has rated everyone, while 11 will allow just about every game.
You should play around with these levels to find the best one for your family.
You can also create a subaccount for your kids that will have these restrictions preset.
The pass code is set to 000 by
default, so be sure to create a new one.
This will ensure that your kids don't sneak on to the console while you're at work.
