The functioning of the service follows the structure and functionality of the other streaming competitors.
Paramount + allows you to create up to 5 profiles for different viewers in the family, including children. Each will have a customized screen and will not interfere with the other additional profiles.
The Kids Mode allows you to limit access to some content unsuitable for a young audience. Activating it is very simple: just, when creating a profile, check the option available on ON. Note: Profiles with Child Mode enabled can access adult profiles by selecting the option Change profile. To make sure children only see age-appropriate content, you need to set the Parental control on your account page. In this way, it will become necessary to enter the PIN if you want to change profiles. Warning: by deactivating the Parental control all settings, including the PIN, will be deleted.
In terms of simultaneous views, currently Paramount + allows the possibility of up to a maximum of two devices simultaneously.
Each profile can access the sections Keep watching And Recommended. In the first you will find the programs whose viewing has started but not yet finished. In the second, it will display customized content based on the usage history according to suggestions dictated by the platform algorithms.
