Peacock App Parental Controls not working

Unlike most multi-profile apps, the Peacock app doesn't ask you to choose a user profile on startup. 

It defaults to the most recently used profile, bypassing the need for entering the pin if the last-active profile has parental controls enabled. 

The only way to prevent this is manually switching to a non-restricted profile before exiting the app. 

Is there any way to change the default behavior to require that you select a profile before proceeding to the show listings?

You'd have to ask NBC/Peacock.  It's their channel/app.

Tried that, they are useless. I couldn't even get the rep to understand the problem. I was hoping the hive mind had a workaround.  Thanks.
