How do I change my Parental Controls PIN?

If you've linked a console to the Nintendo Switch Parental Controls app, you won't be able to change your Parental Controls settings using the console itself.

Select the settings icon in the app, then select "PIN" to change your PIN.

  • If you haven't linked the Nintendo Switch Parental Controls app to the console, open the HOME Menu on the console and then start System Settings ⇒ Parental Controls ⇒ Parental Controls Settings ⇒ Change PIN to change your PIN.
