Managing Parental Control Locks with Contour 2

To manage Parental Controls, you must go through the Quick Setup option, which allows you to easily set up primary parental controls settings such as TV / Movie ratings, safe browse, application locks, and a purchase PIN.

  • The PIN is receiver specific and does not carry over to other receivers. Always set up a PIN for each receiver as needed.
  • TV and Movie ratings locks are grouped by age range such as Little Kids, Older Kids, and Teens.
  • Low Safety is a combination of Safe Search and the Safe Browse settings.
  • The following TV / Movie Ratings and Safe Browse settings are included in the following age ranges and all require a PIN to access content.
