3) Select the 'Parental Control' option to turn parental controls on, then click on 'PIN Code' to set a 4-digit PIN code.

Parental Controls Explained: 
At the moment when you turn on parental controls, magazines that are not suitable for children can no longer be accessed in the profile that has parental controls activated. We are aware that every parent's opinion of what is and is not appropriate can vary, that's why you can always hide titles if our standard parental controls feature is not enough.

Hiding specifc titles:
We have just introduced a new function which will allow you to hide specific magazines in each profile. This new function is great for keeping control over the content that your child has access to! 

To hide titles under your child's account please follow the instructions below: 
  1. Open up the Readly app and go into your child's profile 
  2. Press and hold on the cover/title you would like to hide 
  3. Select "Hide Title" 
Now, this title is hidden from the Discovery and Magazines tab. You can view your child's hidden magazines by going into the "My Content" tab, scroll down to "Hidden Magazines", select "Show" and then enter your parental control pin.
