Guess what? Your Nintendo Switch has parental controls. That's not surprising. You can limit online access, loading the eShop, and set ranges and age recommended content. But you can also do this on your phone. The Nintendo Switch Parental Controls app isn't easy to find on the App Store. But enter the address on your Switch into your phone's browser and you'll get to it fast. The free app can link up to multiple intend switches and act like a monitor and screen time timer. Hearing is relatively easy use temporary code that get's entered into the parental control settings on the switch after you've selected user smart device. You also need to be connected to the internet. When it's linked the app can be used to set time limits on game play by day and show what your kid is applying by user account. You can even turn off the switch remotely after a time limit. A cruel move, but sometimes necessary. Remote controlling your switch means you don't need to spend time finding the switch system either. You need a Nintendo account to link to a Switch. And once paired, the Switch stays in a password-required parental control mode for getting online to use WiFi. But to remove those controls, just unlink the app from your phone. You're back to normal. Now, good luck being a parent.
