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

  • Best app 5/5

    By sggdv
    This is the best app I hVe eversennnn
  • Still working on it 4/5

    By Blklites
    Still working on keeping eyes on my grans games...
  • Poor 1/5

    By justanynicknamenottaken12331
    We have one console and two kids. Why is it that as a parent I can’t time-limit each kid independently from each other? How hard can it be to have one login for each kid with a time limit set by the parent? Parent-managing this device is really frustrating just because of the very limited options in this app. I am seriously considering getting rid of it.
  • Can’t sign in 1/5

    By dc9000
    Clicking the sign in button doesn’t do anything. Lame
  • Restrictions 1/5

    By Izzy10CreatsStories
    Dear Nintendo, Do not tell me which games that I can or cannot play because of my age. My parents and I have agreed that I can play any game that I want to, so when I download your app and set everything to “not restricted” you do not restrict anything! Parental controls were not added to my switch until I was told by your customer support to download them because I could not view content. I’m sorry, but it is not your place to decide what your customers can and cannot view. I will say that I will not be buying many new Nintendo products in the future because of this issue. I have spent hours in settings trying to solve the problem myself and when I contacted your support the advice given to me did not work either. Thank you for your time, fix your problems.
  • So much potential but... 2/5

    By C2D2one
    The timer has been wildly inaccurate. My son will pick his game up from the charging station and within 10 minutes it starts to tell him he only has a few minutes left of his 30 min time limit and then it cuts him off around 15-20 min. How the timing is so off is beyond me. It would also be nice if there was a quick way (perhaps just a toggle switch) to just lock and unlock the device from the app. Also unsure of why you can only set a bedtime but not the start of the wake time. Nintendo should perhaps take a cue from the google family link app... that’s more of what parents are looking for here.
  • I can’t log into my account. 1/5

    By ndshnd
    The submit button won’t work when tapped on.
  • Epic Fail 1/5

    By Raeldor
    Can’t set limits per individual user? Oh dear. 😩
  • 2 kids 1 switch 5/5

    By the stank-meistaaaa
    This app is a wallet saver and sanity preserver . I was a little bummed about the fact that you can’t control these settings by user HOWEVER..... I’m thrilled with the fact that you can set a time limit for almost everything and set easy to understand restrictions for certain features. 10/10 would recommend. Good job Nintendo 😎👍🏾
  • Nintendo is garbage 1/5

    By timellis74
    This application is complete garbage. The Nintendo parental controls system is also complete garbage. It has been nothing but a gigantic headache. I wish I could go back in time and turn it off. It is virtually impossible to get rid of.
  • Great app for parents! 5/5

    By KitKat 💋
    You can monitor everything!
  • Okay for self regulation - families, sorry 3/5

    By k8legr8
    Anyone who has more than one player to a Switch this isn’t going to help, as you can’t limit time by user, just by Switch. Dumb. Just... lock the account after the set time Nintendo. Why is that so hard on the backend? If you’re doing this for one child, or yourself because you completely lack self control *waves* it works a-okay. Mine biggest complaint is that “bedtime” is between 4 and midnight. So if I’m up past midnight... suddenly I can access tomorrow’s playtime. Self regulators: You can set your time limits and then delete the app. I do this to make it harder for myself to extend the time “just another 15 minutes.” And it works wonderfully. Otherwise it’s pretty easy to bypass. (I’m not knocking the score for how easy it is to self bypass. That’s not it’s purpose.)
  • I like it but.... 3/5

    By SuchaQt4556
    This app has great potential but it is absolutely frustrating. If it’s “Parental Controls” then I should be able to set time limits and restrictions for my kid, not me or my husband. It’s is amazing that this has not been fixed or changed by now.
  • For what it is it works, could be much better 2/5

    By kurtvl
    It’s fine What needs to happen is adding granular time controls for accounts.
  • Lack of feature 2/5

    By Mainline9
    Already listed by other but hopefully the most low-star reviews will help Nintendo to act. The two big ones for me are (1) no time of day restrictions (2) not tied to individual users.
  • DUMB 1/5

    By noob4838
    YOUR MENT TO KNOW THE PASSWORD?!?! I DON’T KNOW MY CHILD’S PASSWORD,THEY WON’T TELL ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Great app, but... 4/5

    By Reviag
    ...playing times schedule is needed.
  • Good but could be better 4/5

    By Ccmcd1
    The app allows us parents to monitor screen time and purchases. It would be great to add a feature that allows parents to remotely lock the switch so the child can no longer use it unless a pass code is entered. Add parental controls like that and the app would be awesome.
  • Nice interface but doesn’t stop play at limit 2/5

    By technotrekker
    I’ve set a limit of 1:15 mins (nice that it does quarter hour increments) but my son has blown that out of the water the last couple of days. Why doesn’t switch shut off at limit????
  • App doesn’t work to control screen time 1/5

    By Colokim22
    I’m highly disappointed and frustrated with this app. Despite multiple attempts and installations, it does not work as described.
  • ... 1/5

    By Raeraeface
    I’m a kid what do you Think I’d say oh it’s perfect I love this app that limits my time on my switch no I hate it 1 star
  • Reset clock to incorrect time 1/5

    By CurlyRoller
    Think twice before installing. When I linked this app to my switch lite, it reset my clock to 6 hours earlier than the actual time (with the correct time zone selected) and spoiled all my turnips. Wish I could give it 0 stars.
  • It Could Be Great 3/5

    By ExtraNope2013
    This app could be awesome, but it is lacking. There are times it shows the Switch has been played when it was merely updating. There are a lot of great points others have mentioned as well.
  • Not effective 1/5

    By sommanita
    This only allows you to control total time the Switch is being played throughout a 24-hour period, without the ability of setting limits by user. Without being able to limit at the user level, this app is not useful.
  • Great app, needs improvement on the actual controls 3/5

    By simple parent
    What is unfortunate is when The controls are disabled from the unit, it no longer logs the playtime. Another feature it’s lacking is a simple SUSPEND PLAY button! Sometimes a parent needs to just disable the thing without reducing time limits, etcetera. My kids hijack my phone and disable the limits!
  • Very convenient 5/5

    By Clarkent3000
  • Does not control screen time 2/5

    By Steve-O-Rooney
    Only warns a user that they have reached time limit. It does not lock them out. If Microsoft Family can do it, so can Nintendo.
  • Missing time of day and other restrictions 2/5

    By PersonalView
    Please add time of day for playtime restrictions. Please add more detailed online capabilities.
  • Is this a joke? 1/5

    By Eviedry01:)
    I finally found an app that will help me regulate how much time my son is spending in the switch. But it somehow seems to not work. Great. Thanks. I reset the pin. We will see what happens today. Somehow he is lifting the restrictions.
  • They need to do better 1/5

    By Shezzaho
    This app is stupid why can’t I put a lock on account or game
  • I just downloaded this app even though I don’t have a switch 5/5

    By Atticus Schelling
    I just downloaded this app without even having a switch
  • Doesn’t work 1/5

    By jerfus17
    Horrible implementation and just can’t access my account Nintendo account from this app for some reason.
  • easy to use, but could have more features 4/5

    By m0cleary
    App works well, though there could be some more features and controls. It would be nice if you could schedule windows that kids can you the switch, such as not before 8am, etc., and then maybe track time between multiple kids.
  • No control at all... 1/5

    By Drj387205
    Cette app est nulle
  • Wish the app can do a little more 4/5

    By Quezh
    If the setting for play time can set the bed time there should be a rest time up to let kids understand the importance of taking a break from gaming. And also to know they can always come back and play when well rested.
  • Help please 1/5

    By rosie is bedt
    My kid put on parental controls on accident but forgot the pin she put. I joined your website to turn it off, but I have to pay$0.50 is there a way I can did it for free?
  • Good to have but limited. 3/5

    By BlinkH
    Would like the ability to lock the console remotely.
  • Parents Dream 4/5

    By Teex2
    This is great to know what your child is doing, and for how long the are on. It’s great!
  • Lacking Control 1/5

    By cgaston85
    Great idea, but without the ability to password/pin protect the parental user on the actual switch, this allows no control of the kids profile.
  • Keep your kids eyes from overuse 5/5

    By LancerKind
    This app will keep your kids from hunching over their switch (ruining their spine) and staring at a screen for too long.
  • Not really good 2/5

    By coolkid1034
    When I heard about this I was happy that Nintendo made an app but the only problem about the app that when I shut off all of the apps in the switch it doesn’t shut off. In conclusion, the app is really bad.
  • Switch online 4/5

    By k.polanco
    Why download the parental control app ..when the feature is ther on the switch online app? why do i need the switch online app for??
  • I don’t use it as intended but... 3/5

    By Silverco1125
    This app is the only way to get detailed reports on playtime. Meaning, I, as an independent 20 year old, have to download and use a parental control app in order to know how much of a game I’m playing each day. You know, just to know. It’s genuinely baffling to me. The app is fine and works as intended but it is kind of bare bones for a parent who wants to put restrictions on their child. For me, it’s perfectly fine. I just wish I could see a detailed playtime report without it.
  • No true timer 2/5

    By TrevWILL79
    I thought that there was a way to create a timer at random o
  • Does not work at all 1/5

    By lin7688
    Terrible I tried to set a time limit to six hours I still get access even with the shut off times for 1145 at night it’s just a horrible app it does not work
  • Shut down options 5/5

    By ashadice
    The switch is and excellent device ...... just wish I could shut it down from my phone when I wish for my son to come off
  • Pointless 1/5

    By mybabyty
    I really thought that this was a legit parent control time restriction app. Not so much. Yeah, a parent can set the times, but the device does NOT turn off when time is up, it only gives warnings, which kids just laugh at & ignore, while they continue to play. Try to be more like the app Family Link. You set parental times on that and it’s legit “Sorry kids, your time is up now!”
  • Control 5/5

    By Juan Silvestri
    A se controla a los niños en su tiempo de juego y más
  • I don't think it's very nice 1/5

    By Becknbauer
    I do not like it because I don't have A lot of time to play on my switch.
