You can set the maximum rating for movies and TV shows separately. If parental controls are turned on, when you try to play a video whose rating exceeds your maximum allowed rating, you'll see a message letting you know that access is restricted by parental controls.

You can set Parental Controls for MAX GO by navigating to Settings > Parental Controls. To set the Parental Controls, choose the maximum ratings allowed, create a PIN, and save your changes. To modify your Parental Controls, click the lock icon.

Note  Parental Controls are shared between MAX GO and HBO GO. Any changes will apply to both apps.
