    What we now need to do, is find the "Settings" menu.
    To do that, we need to swipe the notification panel down. To do that, start right at the top of the screen, and swipe downwards. Once the notification panel has appeared, we will see an icon in the corner.

    Now, press down on the section that says, "Allow incoming calls, Allow incoming calls during Kid Mode." This option is activated and if our children are using "Kid Mode" and we have an incoming call, then this HTC One M8 will allow that call to come through to us.
    This can be good because this allows us to receive the call. It can also be slightly dangerous because the children may answer the call. We may then want to turn off this option.
