Netflix is launching two new tools this week that should help make it easier to find age-appropriate content in the children’s version of the streaming service.
Today, Netflix introduces a new Top 10 line of age-restricted profiles, borrowing from the adult version of the service to find one of the most useful tools. Netflix existing top 10 tool works by coating the service with the most popular headlines, often new and original headlines, which can make something searchable much less a headache. The line-up is released in 93 countries and is updated daily, and includes both programs and movies with a regional equivalent of PG and below rating. In addition, titles that perform surgery will display a “Top 10” mark on Netflix when they have made surgery.

Separately, Netflix will also introduce a bi-weekly Kids Recap Email site that launches on Friday. An email sent to account holders who have at least one child profile set up includes tips on using the platform’s features, provides information about the content viewed on children’s profiles, and recommends similar content based on your viewing history.
