What are premium services controls?

Premium services controls determine a user's access to premium services such as AOL mobile texting. In order for your child to participate, you must specifically permit them to do so using Parental Controls.

To use the premium services controls:

  2. Click on the screen name whose premium services controls you would like to update.
  3. Click the More Options button at the top of the controls window and select Premium Services Controls from the drop-down menu.
  4. Click in the box to allow or restrict premium services.
  5. Click Save.
