If you don’t want your children to be able to access certain add-ons within Kodi, you’ll probably want to enable parental controls to curb their viewing access.
Here is the top 3 methods of full parental control within kodi
1. Universal Parental Control
Universal Parental Control is built to work with videos played from your Kodi library and ALL addons. Addon developers do not need to change anything and Universal PC works even if metadata is disabled. Highly configurable: Set your PIN, set your watershed time, exclude addons if required, exclude modes if required.
If you want to make a source more private, you can use lockcodes or passwords to protect that source. The easiest way to accomplish this in Kodi, is using the GUI dialogs. First, enable the Master Lock in Settings/System/Master lock. After enabling the Master Lock, a Set Lock button will pop up in the Context Menu allowing you to set a lock on specific sources. Kodi will ask for the master lock codeand then give you the opportunity to set a unique Password on that specific share. To Remove the Lock you need to remember the Master Lock code.
3. XBMC Parental Controls
