    You can add another parent to My Family on the My Family website. Both parents can manage the kid’s settings, but can’t change each other’s settings.

    You can select which game ratings your kid can see and which apps and games the kid can download. Sign in to your My Family account, and change the settings for your kid. You can also prevent your kid from downloading any apps or games.

    You need to add valid credit card info to prove that you are an adult if your kid is 12 years old or younger. No charges are made to your credit card, and your credit card number is not saved. The legal adult age varies by country and region.
