Did you know that the Galaxy S5 features a Kids Mode? It provides fun and safe content for children and it lets you restrict access to apps and media content. Thanks to Kids Mode you can let your child use your Galaxy S5 safe in the knowledge that he won’t access something he shouldn’t.

And speaking about accessing something that shouldn’t be accessed, did you know that the Galaxy S5 features a Private Mode? It lets you hide personal documents, pictures, text messages, videos, voicemails, and so on.

Children and friends will surely want to play with your Android-powered, Galaxy S5 smartphone. But what if they access something they shouldn’t? What if your child deletes a document you need? What if your friend reads your text messages? You can protect yourself from potentially awkward situations with Kids Mode and Private Mode.

Kids Mode lets perform the following tasks:
  • Limit the time your child can spend on the smartphone.
  • Block access to apps.
  • Block access to media.
Kids Mode is made up of 5 default apps: a camera app, a painting app, a voice recorder, and a video app. From the Kids Store you can get more games as well as learning apps for your child. When you download a new app, a gift box will appear on the Kids Mode screen.

Please note that in most regions, Kids Mode is not fully installed. You will find a Kids Mode link in your smartphone’s home screen or app drawer. Tap the link to get the Kids Mode app and install it. When you launch Kids Mode you will be invited to set up a PIN and create a profile for your child. The app does not provide support for multiple profiles.

Private Mode lets you hide personal documents, pictures, text messages, videos, voicemails, and so on. If a friend wants to play with your Galaxy S5, you can rest assured that said friend won’t be able to access your pics, texts, and so on. Choose how to unlock the screen in private mode and select the files that you want to hide; when the smartphone is accessed in normal mode, the files you hid away will not show up.
