See our step by step how-to guide to get started
Kids Safe Mode is one of the key features which forms part of Sky’s commitment to ensure children are safe whilst watching TV and spending time online. It is a simple way for parents to have ultimate peace of mind when their children are watching TV.
The setting allows parents to lock their Sky Q box in the Kids section, by simply selecting the setting and entering their TV PIN.

The feature allows children to have a dedicated space, making it easier for them to find shows and films they can enjoy. It also allows them to develop a sense of independence as they are able to take control of the remote and explore in a safe space.
Kids Safe Mode on Sky Q can be activated by entering a Sky Pin number. Once it’s on, the feature will only allow you into Sky’s kids’ section which only shows content suitable for 0 to 12 year-olds. It will stay on even if you turn off the Sky Q box and or the box is rebooted.
