I'm worried about the related videos that show up next to what my kid watches on YouTube. Is there any way to filter out what shows up in that section?

You can't filter or remove YouTube's related videos, which display in the Up Next section. But you can adjust some settings to reduce the risk of your kid seeing inappropriate related videos. Google uses different kinds of data to try to tailor the videos in the Up Next section to your taste, including the video that you're currently watching and even your search history across other Google products, such as search. But this method isn't perfect and allows some videos you don't want to see slip through. Here are some tips to reduce inappropriate related videos and tailor them to your taste:

Turn off Autoplay. The related videos will still display, but they won't play instantly.

Manage History. Go to History in the Library section. Toggle off your Watch History and your Search History. This erases all of the previous data Google was tracking to identify related videos and lets you start fresh. You can also delete individual videos from your history when you don't want Google to use them for related videos.

Use Playlists. You can create your own playlists or watch the ones already created by your favorite YouTubers. When you watch playlists, the Up Next videos that display are all the ones in the list (in this case, it's OK to keep Autoplay enabled). Other related content will display, but lower on the page.

Use Restricted Mode. Go to your YouTube account settings (the little gear symbol). At the bottom of the page is the option to enable Restricted Mode. This will cut down on inappropriate videos but won't eliminate them completely.

Give Google Feedback. In the Up Next section, click on the three dots that display next to the video. Select Not Interested and then Tell Us Why.

Subscribe to channels you like. When you subscribe, you'll see these channels in your feed, and it also helps YouTube's algorithm predict what you'll like.

Effective powerful love spell to get your Ex lover back urgently after breakup/divorce!. Hi everyone, I'm so excited. My ex-boyfriend is back after a breakup, I’m extremely happy that will are living together again. My boyfriend of a 4yr just broke up with me and am 30 weeks pregnant. I have cried myself to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again. Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes, my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time. Generally he is a very nice guy, he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along. He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot .After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change. I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with. I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe. He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy, he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy. I was really upset and I needed help, so I searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and I did it then he did a spell for me. 17 hours later, my bf came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my bf are living together happily again... All thanks to Dr Ahmed if you have any problem contact Dr Ahmed now and I guarantee you that he will help you. Here’s his contact. Email him at: [email protected] Call/what’s-app him: +2348160153829
