How to set up
parental controls on Android
Here I am
telling you to protect your children on an Android smartphone or tablet with
restricted profiles and third-party apps. Android has no general built-in
parental control features, but does include rudimentary controls in the Google
Play store, and you may also put apps on your Android smartphone or tablet to
help keep your child safe on the Internet.
Android fans have the ability to set up parental controls on their child's
device, and the recent release of Android 4.3 has enhanced the restricted
profiles feature that was introduced with version 4.2 of the operating system.
For set up parent control follow below steps
1. Open Settings.
2. Select Users.
3. Tap Add user or profile.
4. Tap to add a Restricted profile.
At this point you will be
prompted to set up a lock using a PIN, password or a pattern if you haven't
already done so.
5. All the installed apps on the device
will then be displayed. Each of these can be toggled on or off as you deem appropriate
for the child you have set the account up for. You cannot disabled all apps
because all apps do not support restricted profiles.
Settings. From here you can choose to disable location services.
6. To start using the restricted account
go to Settings, choose the newly created account and it will be set up for you
by Android. From then on every time you lock the screen you will be given an
option to use the restricted account you created.
