Minecraft settings explained and Minecraft parental controls.
There are small ways to improve safety in the MInecraft settings, depending on how your child is playing. One is setting the account name to something other than a name, address or date of birth.
If your child is playing on a console, such as Xbox, there are profile settings you can use to monitor and control your child’s gaming experience. Using the Xbox, you could take out a Minecraft Realms subscription, enabling your child to play and explore with up to 10 friends on their own private server.
Minecraft parental controls are also available for the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4.
