Parental Controls

Nintendo Switch offers a variety of exciting features. However, as a parent, you might want to restrict certain things which you deem unsuitable for children. We have prepared special steps to enable you to make Nintendo Switch safe for your family. Nintendo Switch Parental Controls are available on the console itself and can also be controlled by an app on your smart device. During the initial setup of your console, you can select how you would like to set Parental Controls. Follow the on-screen instructions to finish setting Parental Controls. On the console itself, you can use a PIN to set and change your desired Parental Controls settings. Your PIN can also be used to temporarily disable Parental Controls if you should wish to do so. You can also change your settings at any time – even when you are away from home – using the dedicated app.

Purchase Restrictions in Nintendo eShop
In order to restrict Nintendo eShop purchases, you must associate your child’s Nintendo Account with your Nintendo Account. Access your Nintendo Account on a smart device or PC to create an account for your child or associate an existing account with yours and set restrictions as you deem appropriate in the Nintendo Account settings.


Using the Joy-Con Controllers (not applicable to Nintendo Switch Lite)

Charge and pair controllers before using them for the first time. You can charge and pair controllers by attaching them directly to the console or using the Joy-Con charging grip (HAC-012) (sold separately). To charge the controllers fully when they are attached to the console, ensure that the console is charging at the same time.

When playing with a Joy-Con detached from the console, make sure to use a Joy-Con strap accessory. To attach a Joy-Con strap accessory, match the + or – Button on the controller with the same symbol on the accessory. Slide the Joy-Con strap accessory onto the controller and lock it using the slide lock. Then, put on and tighten the wrist strap. Hold the controller securely and do not let go of it. Allow adequate room around you during gameplay. When you are done playing, release the slide lock before detaching the accessory from the Joy-Con. When attaching a Joy-Con to the console or attaching a Joy-Con strap accessory, make sure that you orientate the Joy-Con correctly and slide it into place until you hear a clicking sound. When detaching a Joy-Con from the console or another device, make sure that you hold the button on the back and slide upwards.

FAQs Nintendo Switch Lite Controller User Guide

Can Switch Lite support more controllers?

Players can wirelessly attach suitable controllers (available separately) to Nintendo Switch Lite in order to play titles that do not support portable mode. Users will require a device to recharge their own Joy-Con controllers, such as the Joy-Con Charging Grip if they choose to use them.

Switch Lite controllers can they be taken off?

The Switch Lite lacks the detachable Joy-Con controllers that the standard Switch has, which are used wirelessly with the main Switch unit when it is standing up or attached to your TV and can be reattached to the main Switch console for handheld play. This is because the Switch Lite is a handheld-only system.

Do Joysticks on Switch Lite models drift?

Since the Switch’s release, many fans have complained about Joy-Con drift, which, regrettably, also affects owners of the Nintendo Switch Lite.

Does the controller for the Switch Lite have Bluetooth?

Bluetooth Connection This Switch Pro controller can be Bluetooth-paired with Switch consoles and is completely wireless.

Has Switch Lite Bluetooth capability?

Due to the 13.0 system update, Bluetooth headphones are compatible with Nintendo Switch and Switch Lite. The Switch’s Bluetooth connectivity was previously limited to its wireless controllers and did not allow Bluetooth audio.

Can I connect more than one controller to Switch Lite?

You can pair up to eight controllers with your Nintendo Switch system at once, regardless of the type of controller (Joy-Con, Nintendo Switch Pro Controller, etc.).

Can Switch Lite be connected to a TV?

Important: TV Mode is not supported by Nintendo Switch Lite. Open the Nintendo Switch Dock’s back cover. Connect the Nintendo Switch AC adapter’s USB plug.

Can you use Switch and Switch Lite to play two-player games?

Are Joysticks for Switch Lite the same?

According to a hardware disassembly, the analog sticks on the Nintendo Switch Lite are identical to those on the Switch’s original edition. While the sticks in the Switch Lite have different part numbers from those in the original Switch, they otherwise seem to be the same design, according to the YouTube account Spawn Wave.

How is a Nintendo Switch Lite controller cleaned?

If your products need to be disinfected: Use a soft, clean cloth and a consumer-grade disinfectant that has around 70% alcohol in it to lightly apply the solution and wipe the item.
