While children may enjoy playing with your tablet device, there is always the risk that putting your device in your little one’s hands could result in unauthorised purchasing, settings being altered, or something you’d rather people didn’t see being emailed to all names on your contact list.
With this in mind, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S is designed to be fun and safe for both kids and adults alike.
Pre-loaded to your Galaxy Tab S device, the Samsung exclusive Kids’ Mode includes five specially designed apps – camera, karaoke, drawing, picture gallery, and video playback – which adapt the tablet’s existing functions into entertaining and intuitive features for kids. Kids’ Mode is controlled by a PIN code, preventing children from wandering outside the dedicated app suite, and additional parental control settings, such as a daily playtime limit or regulating media accessibility, are also available.
As your child becomes more proficient and trustworthy, they can leave Kids’ Mode behind and log into a separate user account, where you can activate personalised settings to ensure appropriate content. You can even save your child’s fingerprint in the sensor to activate their own user account.
Samsung also offers its own Kids Store, which now contains over 900 child-friendly apps. An age-range filter allows you to select apps that will entertain and challenge your children as they grow, while the content is also classified by function – learning, play, or story – so that you can incorporate education into your child’s playtime.
