  4. 4
    Once the phone has been unlocked, we will see the Home screen, and at the bottom of the screen, we will see several icons
    .
    We now need to find the Settings menu, and to do that, we need to swipe the Notification panel down.

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  7. 7
    We are looking for the icon at the top right-hand corner of the screen
    .
    It is a white cog icon. This is our Settings icon.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  8. 8
    Press down on this icon, and it will open up the "Settings" menu
    .
    It says the word "Settings" in the top left-hand corner of the screen.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  9. 9
    Now, let's scroll down to the "PERSONAL" section, indicated by the word "PERSONAL" in the gray bar
    .

  10. 10
    In this section, we are looking for the "Security" option

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    In the "Kid Mode" section, we are looking for the first option that says "Parent Dashboard"
    .
    Press down on this option, and it will open up our Kid Mode option. What we can do in Kid Mode is add a number of children. We can add multiple children and create a separate profile and separate page for each child. That means that we can set different limits for each child as well as age-specific activities. We can also let them use different applications. If we have one child that is 8, and one that is 14, we can create radically different pages for those children with features specific to their ages.

  14. 14
    In order to create a new page and add a child to the Kid Mode, we need to press down on the section at the top
    .
    Right now, it says "Bob", and this is the name of one of the children we have added to this application.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    As soon as we press down on that name, a menu will appear
    .
    It shows the one name, and underneath it says "Add Child".

  16. 16
    Press on "Add Child"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  17. 17
    This will bring up the screen where we will add the information for the child
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  18. 18
    First, type in a "Nickname" for the child
    .
    We'll just put "Ash".
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  19. 19
    If some suggested spellings appear, just press anywhere on the screen where there is no text to remove these and get rid of the keyboard
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  20. 20
    We can also edit the "Birthday" by pressing down on either the month or the year, and then choosing from the menu that appears
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  21. 21
    We can tap on "Edit photo" at the bottom of the square box to add a photo if desired
    .
    This will take us to our photo album. If we have a photo of our child, we could choose that, but we don't have a photo of our child currently. We can use any photo, so press down on a photo to add it. It is better to use a photo of the child because in the actual Kid Mode application, we'll be able to see the different children, and each one will be identified by this photo.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help

    Once happy with all of the information, press the purple "Save" button at the bottom left corner of the screen
    .
    That will save this child's profile.
