Nintendo Switch Parental Cont… App

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.

Nintendo Switch Parental Cont… app reviews

  • Great 5/5

    By jaybear34
    Perfect for monitoring your child’s playing time
  • Love the timed usage! 5/5

    By dogandhowie
    I set a limit & the machine turns off. No arguing about “just 5 more minutes Mom ... PLEEEEZE?!?!?”
  • Lots of options 5/5

    By ttcarson
    The parental controls on the switch are expansive. It’s all you need to manage your kids’ “screen time”.
  • Limited Time Limit Restrictions 1/5

    By Kane KS
    Clearly, one of the main reasons for having parental control over a video game console is limiting the time your kids use it. This app does not give a parent the ability to set time limits per user. It seems that you can only set a daily limit for the console regardless of who uses it. This is useless in a household with multiple users.
  • require an update? 1/5

    By C0ye
    but there is no such update in app store!
  • Needs a lot of work 1/5

    By Oliver Deez
    The inability to control each account separately, is a huge swing and a miss. I would like to set time limits per child, and not the whole system. Further to this, is should be able to control content and game ratings separately too. Please come out with an update that address these short falls.
  • Please Allow Settings By User 3/5

    By Qwest in NC
    Great basic app, but allow us to set times by user. My family shares a switch and I want to allow X amount of time per child as opposed to a total amount for everyone. Please add this feature and it’ll be perfect.
  • User profiles, Nintendo! 1/5

    By esparks
    Restrictions are applied to the console instead of the user profiles. What does this mean? You can't vary restrictions based on the ages of more than one child. Once you give the child access to the console, there's nothing keeping them from playing as a different user profile. I don't want my kids to be able to access my game saves or play mature content, but this just makes parental controls painful to use. What I want is basically what Xbox does. You sign in at the start of a gaming session, and content is restricted to that specific user profile. For my kids to access my profile, they need a password. For their own profile, they only have access to appropriate content and they can request my permission for things they can't access. The Wii U even had separate profile access. I don't understand how Nintendo could hose this up so badly.
  • Love it 5/5

    By Nikkigear
    Helps my child
  • New update but still not fixed 1/5

    By Dblohsevn
    Still no way to limit specific users. When you have an adult and a child that play it makes this app all but worthless
  • Room for improvement 2/5

    By SK Harris
    It’s ok I guess, I would like some more security features such as a lockdown mode where you can deactivate the device or render it useless in the event its lost or stolen.
  • error on selecting account 1/5

    By wolfman_4_ever
    I get error code 2804-0400 after I login to my nintendo account. no info online about this error.
  • Alright 3/5

    It covers all the essentials but a big feature we need is a way to lock our adult profiles so the kids don’t meddle with my breath of the wild save.
  • Can’t even login. Thinks I’m registering 1/5

    By BillyD4
    Got a new phone and downloaded app. Go to login and pick google. After typing in email it errors saying you can’t register due to email already in use. I’m not registering. I’m clearly picking login. Notifications on the switch are also buggy. Randomly “rings” about time up and then let’s them keep playing.
  • Great app 5/5

    By Jaymz918
    Very cool app, very efficient.
  • Really 5/5

    By Petey5796
    You don’t need separate accounts just put one hour for the first child when that is up put 2 hours (if next child needs 1 hour) then so on and so on because 1 hour will be down so there will be one hour left for 2 hours
  • Needs improvement 2/5

    By AllocInit
    1. The app itself needs a PIN to prevent kids from changing settings! 2. There needs to be a way to temporarily extend play time without changing scheduled play time. 3. Time ranges for allowing and disallowing.
  • Nintendo Switch 5/5

    By Coye14
    This is a really good app and I love how it lets me know how long I have played!
  • Finally I’m in control #signedTHEPARENT 5/5

    By Wezzie❤️
    The best thing a video game system could have ever done for mankind🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾
  • Good attempt, needs more parental control flex.. 2/5

    By JATX1972
    Overall, I agree with others about being able to assign time on a per user basis (not total aggregate time). Another feature that should be added is a better control of usage by specific timeframe (example, not able to use the switch between 6am and 8am). Keep up the development and you can achieve a good parental control control. Anything is better than nothing :)
  • Thank you so much nintendo 5/5

    By orefalo
    Finally a company which listens to parents.
  • ATCRM 4/5

    By Alpha Team {CompRedMan}
    האפליקציה טובה מאוד ועוזרת לי מאוד אך כשחושבים על זה צריך להוסיף כמה דברים לאפליקציה שיהיה יותר נוח להישתמש בה
  • NO Control At All, Really 1/5

    By thepipers
    This is the worst excuse for a "parental control" app that is conceivable. Here are the critical missing features that make this the worst thing ever: 1) No ability to password lock users out of other users games. 2) No restrictions for System Settings!? 3) Can't password protect the Switch from all unauthorized use? 4) Can't protect parental profile settings. All this really does is prevent kids from buying things or playing higher-rating games. It will not stop any user from reating mayhem by ruining saved games, changing profile settings, changing TV and internet settings, etc, etc... this thing is worthless!
  • Great ap 5/5

    By WadeMeister
    Actually works. Wish I could assign time for different kids but it is really nice and even tells me the time each day and which games they played. You can also set age appropriateness of games. Two big thumbs up to Nintendo!
  • Awesome System. Awesome Parental Controls 5/5

    By Armor10
    Great system easy setup. Excellent App that’s easy to pair to the device. Gives you control of content as well as playtime.
  • Da wurst 5/5

    By Biggy McChiggy
    I h8 dis gam. It no evn a gam! Regurdles, 5 star
  • I like it 5/5

    By csr6179
    Nice platform for the switch very easy to navigate
  • What does this app do aside from inform 1/5

    By Marnelli Martin
    Should make it a hard stop.
  • Has potential 5/5

    By HivelocityBen
    Good so far. However I recommend implementing more granular control. For example, a way to force break times during the day after a block of time played.
  • Great app to track 4/5

    By diego126
    This would be a five though it only lacks in speedy updates that's all. Overall the app gives info and settings that help with the switch just speed.
  • Needs time limits per user 1/5

    By kingtaj
    The time limit feature is completely useless until you can set a limit for each user.
  • Just awful 1/5

    By Mad Costumer 😡
    My daughter wanted a new account for Nintendo and I don’t blame her, so when I tried to delete her old acc it access to her account which is not sensible at all hope fully ur dull programmers would fix that. 😑
  • Add one thing 1/5

    By Time controls?
    Why can’t I specify time length for each kid? That seems like a no-brainer for such an otherwise fantastic app! Add this and I’ll give it 5 stars!
  • Per-user controls 4/5

    By Echoperson84
    Great app. As a father of 4 kids it would be great having a time limit per user. As of now the master time limit is actually kinda useless. Thanks!
  • Very disappointed. 1/5

    By SarEliDe
    The rule in our house is no electronics before school or until homework is done. My son will constantly try to sneak in some screen time and I have to be hyper vigilant. The portability of the Switch almost made me not buy it (because I didn't want it being smuggled into bedrooms in the middle of the night) but I thought the parental controls would help me to enforce basic rules about when play is allowed. NOPE. This and SO MANY other issues need to be addressed before this app is useful.
  • Parental controls 5/5

    By Brandon.PO
    Top of the line parental controls in my opinion. I have never used these restriction methods until last quarter when my son brought home terrible grades. So far I really enjoy how I can customize the punishment as far as how long he can play. I also love the feature where I can suspend the software if he exceeds his limit of play. I strongly recommend parents use this great tool from Nintendo to keep our kids on the straight and narrow.
  • Amount of Play Time 4/5

    By Twenny5
    I don’t have any kids, but I use this app to check the amount of playtime I spend on each game a day. It is very handy!
  • Great app!! 5/5

    By el huevo salado
    Incredible finally a great way to manage game timing for kids
  • Wii U had it perfect. This is useless. 1/5

    By iinigma
    One setting per console? This feels an awful lot like Nintendo wants me to purchase a Switch for all 5 people in by household who play it, and that’s just not gonna happen. This app is useless in its current state. Nintendo should just make it simple and go back to the far superior parental controls they had established on the Wii U. It makes no sense why they would neuter a system that did exactly what it needed to do (allow you to set permissions per account).
  • Data! 5/5

    By ipefelipe
    Excellent method to keep track of gaming data. Good stuff! Connected!
  • Useless 1/5

    By stech0404
    So I was excited to finally have parental controls on a gaming system. But this doesn’t actually shut the device or soft ware off it just tells the kid times up or bedtime alert. Well I can do that too so what good is parental controls if it doesn’t shut the unit off and I still have to repeatedly tell my kid to turn it off.
  • Needs a fix! 4/5

    By Great scanner app!
    I like this app. It does what I personally need it to do. It does need a fix. It will only work while connected to WiFi and not at all when using mobile internet. This is frustrating when you are away from WiFi and you need to use it.
  • I can’t not link my account to the app 1/5

    By Blakeandchippy
    Ok this app deserves some work for some reason I can’t link my account to the app it’s says this account can not be linked why Nintendo why
  • I’m happy with it. 4/5

    By calebzx9r
    The app allows me to see what my kids have been playing and for how long. I can set curfews and time limits, and adjust immediately. It will also send me a warning if the incorrect parental control password is entered, in case the kids are trying to access areas that have been restricted. While you can’t make changes to the parental controls from the app, you can monitor all usage. It’s a great tool.
  • No time of day limits?! 2/5

    By Calvinbob
    We have a problem with our son sneaking in and finding the switch at night and playing. Really wish there was a way to say no okay is allowed after 8pm on weekdays or something like that
  • It’s a start but needs a lot more 2/5

    By Magicalstarlette
    Love the idea of parental controls and having an app to makes changes. The app itself is easy to maneuver and figure out. My problem is with the lack of options. We have 2 children of different ages and I can’t establish different settings for each of them. I would also like the ability to block games by title not just age. Some games are too frustrating for my son but other games of the same age rating he plays just fine. The time limit should also be by user. Each child gets a set amount of time each day they can play but this isn’t easily managed with these controls. Nintendo PLEASE address these issues!
  • Great App! 5/5

    By KalEl2080
    This is a great app for monitoring the amount of time your child plays. Also love the shut off feature. This is brilliant all around.
  • Great App 5/5

    By Jls4always
    Glad to see a console have a parental app. Able to monitor how much my children play and what they play.
  • Good but could do more 4/5

    By Fishfleas
    Would like to be able to restrict playtime per user. Although this might have to change how users are handled generally on the switch first
  • The parental controla are what all responsible parents wish for! 5/5

    By AlejoEsq
    Having the ability to control the type of games, ratings level and time that children spend with video games is what parents truly need to allow for responsible play without adverse consequences in kids’ health. Hence, setting forth this review concerning Nintendo’s commitment to responsible use of video games and concern for kids’ health was a MUST. Its great to know that a company like Nintendo has a corporate conscience and not an obsessive interest in profits. From here on I am proud to state that my family will be faithful customers.
