Hi,
A parent I know is concerned because when her child goes on YouTube to watch cartoons etc, some of the ads which play before the videos are not always age-appropriate - Ads for games aimed at teens 15+, durex etc. Is there any way to ensure that all the ads that appear are suitable for viewing by under-12s, even if they're not directly aimed at them?

Thanks!

they have a you tube kids service that is supposed to be tailored to them. it does not specify but i assume the ads are also filtered to be kid friendly. i saw a few articles in the early days of the filters letting the wrong stuff through but have not seen anything like that in the last 6 months or so. assuming they have been watching normal youtube i assume you are already looking over their shoulders to keep them where they are supposed to be. so this may be the answer for you.
