What is the status of children on a Samsung phone?


Samsung describes Kids Mode as a “digital playground” and that’s pretty accurate. It is a special environment for children only. Basically, it’s a separate user profile that’s kid-friendly, just like you might find on your TV or streaming service.

Kids mode has a bright and fun theme that is simplified for kids. Your child can create characters and access apps and games designed just for them. Of course, it is not just a free program for everyone. Parents can set up controls, app usage limits, and screen time limits.

Think of Kids Mode like a phone designed specifically for kids who live inside your Samsung device. It can be withdrawn at any time.
