How to set up parental restrictions on the Nintendo Switch News feed

Every now and then there are some things that pop up in the News Feed on my Nintendo Switch that some parents may find questionable. I would imagine that if there is a game you don't want your kids playing, you probably don't want them reading about it either.

Fortunately, with the release of Nintendo Switch firmware 6.0.0, Nintendo has made that incredibly easy to do. Here's what you need to do.


Setting up filters on the News Feed actually couldn't be any easier. You don't actually have to do anything. The News Feed will automatically be filtered based on whatever restriction level you have set up previously!

So you can rest a little easier knowing that Nintendo is thinking about parents and what they want their kids to have access to.

If you have yet to set up parental restrictions on your Switch, that is also a breeze. Check out this article on how to get started!

Do you think this is a good addition for parents?
