Introduction: When you need to hand your Galaxy S23 to a young kid for temporal use, you may use Samsung Kids so that the child will not access your apps and files. He/she can only use the designated apps. Samsung Kids is not designed as a parental control app for kids’ phones. Google’s Family Link can do a better job on kids’ phones and gives kids a better experience with access to all features.

You can restrict children’s access to certain apps, set their usage times, and configure settings to provide a fun and safe environment for children when they use the device.

Open the notification panel, swipe downwards, and then tap Samsung kids(Kids). If you cannot find Samsung kids (Kids) on the quick panel, tap add quick setting buttonsand drag the button over to add it. When starting Samsung Kids for the first time or after performing a data reset, follow the on-screen instructions to complete the setup.

On the Samsung Kids screen, select the app you want to use.
