What you should know


It's child-friendly with some slightly more mature themes


We think most of the content on Wizarding World is child-friendly but it does reference the death of Harry’s parents, which younger children could find upsetting. The Wizarding Passport is a bit like a profile page that shows you things like your Hogwarts house and wand.


There's a paid version


Be aware, there’s a Gold version which gives you access to exclusive features but you have to pay for this.


It's different from Harry Potter: Wizards Unite


Wizarding World is different from Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, which is a standalone game that uses augmented reality (AR). Wizarding World is more of a hub where you can explore news and stories related to the books and films.

Top tips for staying safe

Exploring apps, sites and games together is a great way to involve your child in the decision-making process.

Be positive about what you see, but also be open about your concerns. Ask them what they think is appropriate and what worries them.

If you decide it’s not appropriate, then make sure you explain your reasons why.

You might decide it’s ok for your child to use. If so, make sure you follow the tips below to ensure it’s as safe as possible. And work out a time when you’ll next discuss the app.

Explain that you understand the internet is a great place to play, create, learn and connect. But remind them they can talk to you if anything upsets or worries them.

Reassure them that you won’t overreact – you’re just looking out for them.

And if they feel like they can’t speak to you, tell them to talk to an adult they trust, like a teacher or Childline.


Talking to your child

Having open, regular conversations with your child will help you to really understand and explore the online world together. Our tips and advice can help you start these conversations.
