The Samsung Galaxy S5 and the Galaxy Tab S have a handy feature called Kids Mode. It provides a safe, fun, and educational experience for children and it gives parents peace of mind because, while they’re in Kids mode, children cannot access harmful content. Kids Mode comes with a voice recorder app, a video app, a camera, and a painting app; more apps are available on the Kids Store.

Samsung recently announced that it updated the aforementioned Kids Store and touted the fact that the Kids Store has 900 specially selected apps to offer.

It’s great that children start using technology at a young age. But because they’re young, they need to be supervised. While using your smartphone for example, they may launch apps they shouldn’t, they may delete data you need, they may browse the web and come across harmful content.

To address this situation, Samsung offers Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Tab S customers a handy feature called Kids Mode. You can use it to limit the time your child can spend on the smartphone/tablet, you can use it to block access to apps, and you can use it to block access to media or harmful content.

Kids Mode features 5 default apps that let children draw, watch videos, record their voices with funny cartoon effects and take pictures.
Kids Mode provides access to many other apps via the Kids Store, which, has recently been updated.

The Kids Store, which is available in 150 countries around the world, provides access to lots of free or paid apps – 900 specially selected applications for children. It gives children access to appropriate content and it safeguards children from harmful content. It also recommends meaningful content by age and subject.

The apps on the Kids Store are grouped into several categories:
  • 0-4 years old for preschool children.
  • 5-6 years old for kindergarteners.
  • 7 years old or more in primary school children.
“The average age at which children using ‘smart devices’ for the first time has become lower than before.” said WonPyo Hong, President of the Media Solution Center at Samsung Electronics. “Samsung is committed to providing interesting and educational content to children, while continuing its effort to help parents protect their children and allow them to enjoy safe, parent-approved content in their daily lives.”
