Help with children's accounts
Page updated: 7 December 2016
Children of any age can set up a BBC account. But to keep them safe, kids under 13 need permission from a parent or guardian before they can do certain things, like commenting on message boards.
To get permission, the child first needs to link accounts with a parent or guardian. You can find out how to do that, and much more, by clicking the links below.

If you’re not in the UK, you won’t be able to access children’s content, even if you register for a children’s BBC account. If you’re under 18 and outside the UK, please don’t register for a BBC account as we may have to remove it.
