Content: Parental Guidance
We do not censor any material or restrict access by age to the titles in this collection. However, we do provide three separate collections, aimed at children, teenagers and adults, to assist parents and carers using ComicsPlus with their child. Please note: To help with keeping young people safe online, each collection requires its own login account – you will be prompted to create a new account if accessing the children’s and teen collections for the first time.
Each title has an age rating provided by the publisher (as guidance only) and the app has parental controls to restrict content by age rating.
Parents and carers should be aware of the age ratings when viewing, or allowing children to view ComicsPlus content to ensure that the titles are suitable for their child. Please be aware that titles for older readers may contain violence, offensive language and sexual content.
Free online safety information about helping children and young people stay safe online is available from Get Safe Online, a government supported organisation.
