Bowser Nintendo Switch Parental Controls App

Nintendo has released a new software update for the Nintendo Switch Parentals Controls, the free smartphone app that helps parents to monitor what their children are playing.

The app, which has now been updated to version 1.7.0, will now hide news articles from restricted software – which is based on the game’s age rating – and you will no longer need to use your PIN when entering new internet settings.
