Restrict Access on Echo Devices with a Screen

You can restrict access to select features in the Settings section on the device.

Restricting access blocks the use of select features on the device:

  • Movie Trailers: Restricts viewing movie trailers.
  • Web Videos: Restricts the ability to search and play web videos by voice. Additionally, you can enable SafeSearch mode for web video voice searches, which helps screen out videos that may contain mature content.

    Note: SafeSearch restrictions are limited to voice searches only. Alexa currently does not limit searching on a video provider's site when using the on-screen keyboard.

To restrict access on your device:

  1. Say, "Go to settings," or swipe down from the top of the screen and select Settings.
  2. Select Restrict Access.
  3. Choose a feature to restrict and follow the steps onscreen to enable restricted access.
