rated by an independent ratings body.
To ensure your child only has access to suitably rated content, just set the
correct parental control before you first let your child play. You can set the
parental controls in
(Settings) in the function screen > [Parental Controls] >
[Restrict Use of PS4 Features] > [Application]. Use the tables below for
guidance on how the Parental Control Setting relates to different age groups.
You can restrict access to Blu-ray Disc™ and DVD video content, and to the

Browser will not prevent launch of some applications that use the Internet.
Regardless of the Parental Control Settings, you should monitor your child’s
activity on the PS4™ system. You can override the Parental Control Settings at
any time to allow an older child or adult to play.
