The Nintendo DSI features a simple set of parental controls that determine which games can be played on the unit and how the webcam and Wi-Fi features of the device may be used. In order to change or disable parental controls, you will first need to enter the four-digit personal identification number you set up when you initially created the controls. Nintendo does not determine this number -- every user sets his own PIN.
