This article shows you how to create and assign a Child Profile to a device monitored by Bitdefender Parental Control. Parental Control allows you to limit your children’s access to the Internet and to specific applications, preventing them from viewing inappropriate content whenever you are not around.


In order to use this feature, you will first have to create a child profile and assign it to your kid’s Windows PCs, Macs, smartphones, and tablets running Android or iOS. Here is how to get started:

1. Go to and sign in to your Bitdefender Central account.

2. Select Parental Control on the left sidebar.

3. Click on ADD A CHILD PROFILE. If a child profile already exists, click the ‘+ Add a child profile’ button in the top right corner of the page.

Then select the date of birth and press SAVE. Based on children’s development standards, setting the child’s date of birth automatically loads specifications considered appropriate for their age category.
