How to make your Android phone child friendly with Kid Mode

Kid Mode is a great app made by Zoodles that not only adds some great parental controls to almost any newer Android phone, it also lets them draw, learn, and be creative — under a watchful eye of course. All this can happen without them being able to access or mess with any of your personal stuff. When they’re done, just disable Kid Mode and go back to using your phone like you normally would. Here’s how:

The first thing you’ll need to do is download Kid Mode to your compatible Android phone. (If you’ve got an HTC device, it’ll probably be there already; HTC bought Zoodles some time ago.) If you see an install button, you should be good to go.

How to set up Kid Mode on your Android phone

  1. Launch the Kid Mode app on your Android phone and tap on the Get Started! button.
  2. Verify the year you were born as this is one way you can disable Kid Mode on your Android phone.
  3. Walk through the child setup process and add all the children that will have access to your Android phone and then tap Done when you’ve added them all.
  4. Go ahead and add the apps in the next step you’d like your child to have access to aside from what the Kid Mode app itself offers.
  5. Modify any other settings you’d like for your child such as removing certain sites Kid Mode has preinstalled or setting up times and limits.
