Parental controls on Hulu
Parental controls on Hulu
Summary
At this time, Hulu does not offer a setting that allows for more customized parental controls. Varying supported devices offer parental settings that are often times recognized by the Hulu app.

Parental control options

Users are required to be logged into an account and be at least 17 years of age in order to view mature content (films rated R, TV-MA shows) on Hulu. While we don't have overall parental settings, the best suggestion is to log out of your Hulu account while watching with younger children; this will block mature content. You can also visit our Family or Kids page to browse for content that you and your family can watch together.

 

For Hulu subscribers, you will have access to Hulu Kids. This hub allows a safe, ad-free viewing experience for your child. To access Hulu Kids, please head to ( www.hulu.com/kids ) or click directly on KIDS at the top left-hand corner of any Hulu.com page. For additional information, please visit our Hulu Kids Help Article

 

If you don't have a Hulu subscription, you can access our Family genre under both the TV and Movies drop-downs at the top left of any Hulu.com page.

 

Additionally, we can change the birth year on your account to under 17 years old – This will block mature content while allowing you to watch Hulu videos. To update your birth year, contact Hulu Support.

 

 

SHOWTIME® on Hulu

For subscribers who have added the SHOWTIME Premium Add-on to their subscription, mature content will be restricted based on the age associated with their Hulu account. As with all Hulu accounts, viewers under 17 will not be able to watch restricted content. For devices with universal parental controls, such as Xbox One and Wii U, Hulu content will respect your device’s settings.
