    THE VERDICT

    Released by Nintendo, Nintendo Switch Parental Controls for the Android and iOS is made for parents with children or teenagers who own a Nintendo Switch. To get started, simply register with your Nintendo account, or use your Facebook, Google+, or e-mail account to sign-up for an account. Then, register the six-digit code on your Switch, and through this app, you’re able to monitor the total play-time on the console. You can also set play-time limits with friendly alerts for the user to turn off the Switch, check what games have been played, and restart the console.

    THE PROS

    Registering for a new account or logging in with your current account is fantastically simple to do, thanks to a streamlined registration process that lets you sync up with your Nintendo Switch in just a matter of minutes. Plus, this app runs smoothly and looks really good.

    THE CONS

    What’s the major downside? This app won’t work unless you happen to own a Nintendo Switch, and in order to use the parental controls, both devices will need an active internet connection.

    Description

    Nintendo Switch Parental Controls is a free app for smart devices to keep you engaged with your family's gaming activities on Nintendo Switch.
    A Nintendo Switch console with the latest available system version is required to use this app.

    This is recommended for people worried about things such as:
    1. Is my child spending too much time playing games?
    2. What kind of games is my child playing?
    3. Are the games my child is playing age-appropriate?

    Below are three special features of the Nintendo Switch Parental Controls app:
    1. Monitor play time on your console.
    Set a play-time limit and the console will notify users that the time limit has been reached.
    Parents and guardians can check the Nintendo Switch Parental Controls app to see if the time limit has been followed.
    It is also possible to suspend gameplay automatically when the play-time limit is reached.

    2. Check up on your console's gameplay.
    The summary function allows you to easily see what games have been played on the console recently and how much time was spent playing each day.
    View daily reports and monthly summaries of play activity. If you choose to receive push notifications, you'll be notified when a new monthly summary is available.
    It's an easy way to see what kind of games your family is interested in.

    3. Restrict console features.
    Nintendo Switch functions can be restricted to prevent the console from playing games above a certain age rating.

    Attention:
    An Internet connection is required to use this app. Cellular data may be used. A Nintendo Account (for ages 18 and up) is also required.
    Restrictions to Nintendo eShop purchases can be set from Nintendo Account settings.
    Your use of this app is subject to the Nintendo Account User Agreement available at support.nintendo.com.
    In order to make use of all of the features and settings available in the Nintendo Switch Parental Controls app, all registered Nintendo Switch consoles need to be using the latest system version.

    I just have one problem. I can't use it because my Nintendo account says I'm not 18 (which is true). But the thing is that I want to at least be able to see Skyrim's page on the E shop.
