Support XFINITY TV Online Parental Controls and PINs

Introduction

XFINITY TV offers online parental controls you can set up and customize in order to restrict what your children can watch on both the XFINITY TV Go website and the XFINITY TV Go app.

For the XFINITY TV Go app, you can follow the instructions below to create a PIN, or you can log in to the app to set up your Parental Controls and your PIN directly in the app by going to Settings and selecting Parental Controls.

  5. Set and confirm your Parental Controls PIN and click Save.

** You may need to read the ‘COPPA Opt-In Information’ and select if any of your secondary usernames are under 13.
