Parental Controls

In this topic, you will learn how parental controls work in Brightcove Beacon.

Setting the value

To set the restriction for parental controls, perform the following:

  1. Log in to the Beacon app.
  2. In the app navigate to Settings -> My Account -> Parental Controls
  3. If this is the first time performing this task, when you click on one of the radio buttons for a specific setting you will be prompted for a PIN. If you have made a previous selection you will be prompted for the PIN when you change the selection.
    select level

Note the following:

  • The rating selected means viewers can view content up to and including that rating level.
  • The selected rating applies to ALL registered users of the app.
  • If a viewer tries to watch a restricted video, the app will prompt the viewer for the PIN and if entered correctly the video can be watched.
