If you’re still one of the Switch owners using the special parental controls mobile app, then it’s time for an update.

This latest version (1.14.0) adds support for iOS 14, Android 11 and also includes some bug fixes. This is the first update the app has received since July. While it’s unknown what exact bugs have been resolved, we do know the download size for it is around 28.1 MB.

With this app, you can monitor play time, decide what games are allowed to be played, restrict certain features, and customise online features. Here it is in Nintendo’s words:

It’s only natural for parents to have questions about their kids and gaming. That’s why Nintendo Switch has parental controls that let you set rules for using the system—so you can spend less time worrying and more time having fun. While some parental controls are available on the system itself, the free app gives you even more options.
