How To Set Up Parental Controls On PS5 in 2022?

We understand you love your new and shiny PS5 and are constantly worried about it getting scratched or malfunctioning. In addition, if you have a younger sibling or a child who has access to your console, that fear increases. If you find yourself in such a situation, you could make sure your beloved PS5 is set up with parental controls.

You can also set the amount of money that you are willing to spend per session with the PS5 parental controls. Furthermore, users can also restrict communication, which is helpful when it comes to a child’s account so they can’t chat or share images and videos with strangers online. Even though you can set up parental controls on the PS5, you can also make exceptions for individual PS accounts.
