  • KEEP IT ORIGINAL: Before posting, please check the forum to see if someone else has already submitted a similar idea. If so, show them some support! Suggestions without unique ideas will be merged into an existing one.
  • KEEP IT SIMPLE: Due to the nature of UserVoice’s analytics tool, it’s important that the suggestions we get contain only one idea per post. Posts with multiple ideas will be merged into the suggestion most similar.

  1. You should require a password or PIN to switch to a profile. Currently my 10 year old daughter can just switch to my account.

    You should require a PIN to switch accounts. My 10 year old daughter can just switch to my account and get access to adult programming.

  2. Inappropriate Ads

    Even when someone has access to the shows for adults, that does not mean they want to be shown adds that are completely inappropriate. The commercial for Viceland has forced me to comment. If I can't find a way to personalize my profile so those kinds of ads do not appear when I'm streaming, I'm cancelling my account completely, the live feature and the basic account.

  3. Kids lock

    We used to be able to lock the just for kids portion on Hulu and now no longer have that option. I also don't like that we can't remove programs that we don't find appropriate or add programs we allow to the kids profiles.

    Our kids can just swap to our profile with out any kind of password or pin and that isn't something I approve of.

    I am highly considering swapping companies at this point.

  4. Need more parental control over teenage viewing.

    Kids over "kiddie" status, but younger than adult age (aka teenagers) need parental controls too. They're too old for "kiddie" shows, but I don't want them watching MA rated programs. It's ridiculous that ratings-based limitations can't be set for individual profiles on Hulu, but they can on other streaming services. I'm in the trail period, but I will be cancelling if this is not fixed so that I can more accurately control what my teens watch.

  5. Turn channel when kid show/movie ends on non kid friendly channel.

    I need the channel to change to another kid friendly channel or show when a kid friendly movie or show goes off. The kids screen gave a kids movie playing of FX and I selected that movie for my kids to watch. However, once that movie went off the next move was not kid friendly even though I was in the kids section. This is not acceptable and needs to be fixed very soon.

  7. Password protect each profile.

    Option to password protect each profile and require password to use those profiles. Should associate the Hulu profile with devices that already require passwords, like x box or PC, and then not request password for that device again. Make sure password can be entered from a remote or keyboard without showing password entry on screen.

  8. More control over content.

    I want to be able to control my profiles content more. If I don't want movies over a certain rating I should be able to choose that. Netflix does it. You tube has it. I'm sure it's possible without too much work. Please make this change so I don't have to look through movies I would never watch. I.hate just looking at the covers of some of them.

  10. Parental control

    Please add parental controls to your app so parents have better control of what our kids are watching.

  11. Additional Filters

    Just because Hulu puts something on Kids' profile doesn't mean a show aligns with the values of each individual family, or that it's appropriate for every age that falls under "Kids". Please give parents the option of creating additional filters for specific shows, episodes, or genres, as each family sees fit. It would help us trust you to let us make the best decisions for our families.

  12. Viewing times set

    Being able to set times of day and days of week that Hulu can be watched for each profile in the account seems like a no brainer parental control feature. Being able to access Hulu during school hours and late in the evening makes it very difficult to control viewing habits and changing the password everyday is not a viable option. Why can't this be done?

  15. It would be nice if y’all had a kids countdown for New Year’s Eve.

    It would be nice if y’all created a kids New Year’s Eve countdown similar to what Netflix has.

  17. I just added a profile for my kids.

    I like how it is in groups of 2-4 and 5-7 and so on and so forth. It makes it easier for me to find something appropriate for my kids to watch. I just wanted to give my feedback on that. I am impressed.

  18. I want to control what my preschooler watches

    There are not only shows that I find inappropriate for my 4 year old, but there are episodes of certain shows that are inappropriate. I want to be able to block an episode or an entire show in order to give me peace when she wants to watch Hulu.
