    Samsung does have this disclaimer that I am not going to read the entire thing
    .
    But essentially it says that you as parents are responsible for making sure that any app you install is proper for your child. This is because those apps sometimes get through, and sometimes the Samsung makes mistake and parents have different standards. Other parents have no standards at all. You can tap on' Do not show again', when you tap for the tools.
