  11. 11
    Select the bottom option that says "4 digit PIN".
    There are different ways that we can create a child lock. When we want to exit kid mode, we would have to do one of these things. This stops the child from getting into the HTC One M8 and using all the applications and having access to all the information and elements of the phone. Press down on the circle next to the "4 digit PIN" option.

    A warning will appear.
    It says, "WARNING: If you forget your PIN you may NOT be able to exit Kid Mode." Here is where we can provide an emergency exit, which is a good idea, otherwise we may never be able to exit Kid Mode. Press down on that box, which puts a blue tick inside it, then press "Continue".
