Create several users for your kids and select the apps they can use

KidsCare - Child Lock is a useful application for kids who use your mobile phones. If you don't want your kid to click on ads, dial numbers or use certain apps, with this app you'll be able to control which apps they have access to and which ones not.

First of all, you need to create a user (you can create multiple ones), add the picture and then select all the apps your kid will be able to use. Then, you can set the password and add a password hint to remind you. You can repeat this actions with the other users and add different apps to each list.

The design is simple and easy to use, although we would like a children-like design better, perfect for them so they can feel they have their own phone. Anyway, this is a really useful app that works perfectly well. Tapp Software is the developer of KidsCare, their only app so far and a good choice for your kid's safety.

    Only thing missing is the ability to keep kids out of the task bar at the top. It allows them to access WiFi settings, screen brightness, etc.

    I have had app for about 30 min & already want to uninstall. It only works with a couple of my kids' apps & completely blocks the other ones. Within the apps it "works" with, it kicks you out of the app if you accidentally tap on an ad rather than just not taking you to the ad. Complete waste of 99 cents!

    Does good job of keeping the little one in with just her apps. Couple of things though... does not seem to allow booting directly into it... also, exit button is too easy to bring up and does not go away again... surely there should be a short timeout on this? ...lastly, when you put in the pin to exit, it goes back to profile chooser without obvious exit from there. Back key works from there but
