Set-up PIN protection
You can set a PIN for all age-rated content (16+), or just for 18-rated content (18+). It will only work on this browser and only restrict programme content, not advertising content.
If you choose to set it for All rated content (16+), then anyone wishing to view content suitable only for users over 16 years of age will need the PIN.
If you choose to set it at 18 rated content (18+), then anyone wishing to view content suitable only for users over 18 years of age will need the PIN.
Your PIN will be required in order to view rated content each time you log on to Channel4.com but only once per session. You'll have to enter your PIN for each programme you want to view, but you can watch as many episodes of that programme you like without being prompted for your PIN again (until you close your browser to end your session).
If you share your PIN with, or allow your PIN to be accessed by, anyone else and it is entered by them, then all content on Channel4.com will be accessible, including 18 rated content suitable only for adults. Please keep your PIN secure.
Your PIN has now been created.
If you ever forget your PIN, you will be able to contact our Customer Care Centre to have it reset.Proceed

PIN Protected Content
Channel4.com provides access to content reflecting the broad range of Channel 4's programmes which may be unsuitable for younger viewers.
In order to help you control access to the content on Channel4.com from your computer, we have provided a PIN (Personal Identification Number) system. This will enable you to set a PIN to prevent anyone viewing the content you choose to restrict access to. You may find this helpful to ensure children and younger viewers in your household can only view content that is appropriate for them.
Advertisements are not restricted by PIN activation but are restricted by type of programme. For more information about PIN Access, please read our Help Section.
