Kindle Fire Tablet from Amazon is an amazing device, but the option to add the Parental Controls makes it more appealing. Now you can keep an eye on what content is being watched on the tablet. The option will help you get the detailed information of the time spent in viewing the content on Kindle Fire. Not only that, but it also allows you manage the time your child spends on the device along with allowing specific apps and services.
The Kindle Fire Tablet gives the opportunity to the parents to control their kid’s Kindle usage by blocking and unblocking the services in the tablet. It sounds great but the method is a bit lengthy since enabling the parental controls does not restrict the children from accessing every service. There are some additional options which you might want to see to block or unblock for your children to access. So let’s look at the steps to control the Kindle Fire device.
Here’s how to set parental control on Kindle fire tablet
- Swipe down from top of the screen.
- Now tap the Settings option.
- Now go to Personal and tap on Parental Controls.
- Tap to toggle on the Parental Controls option in Kindle Fire.
- Now you have to enter the password or set up a new password.
- Remember it would be safer if you enter a password different from your screen lock.
- Tap to open the Amazon Content and Apps section.

- Tap the Password Protection.
- Toggle on the buttons of the options in the list to password protect them.
- Select Amazon Stores (excluding videos) and Social Sharing to block or unblock.
- To enable the Curfew Schedule, turn on Set a Curfew.
- If you tap Curfew Schedule, then you will be able to give it a time slot on selected days disabling the children to use the Kindle Fire tablet.
- Monitor this Profile option will allow you to get the detailed information on the use of the permitted apps and Kindle tablet.

There is a thing to that you should note that the Monitor This Profile option is controlled only by Parent Profile, not the child profiles. Parental Control is essential to keep an eye on what is being watched or viewed on the device by your children.
