We added some premium features, to avoid illegal commercial use by some manufactures and businesses. These are all new features (except changing app title). In-app permission is required to activate these features. The access to in-app is protected by PIN and is under settings so kids can’t access it. Also, it does not affect any existing functionalities for users who use it for personal use there is no need to buy.
No. You don’t have to buy Premium Features for multiple devices as purchase is tied to your Google Play account. If you just tap on purchase button on new device, app will do a check first and automatically restore the previous purchase. Please not this is only valid for personal use. Please contact us for commercial use of the application.
The location of setting varies by device type and android version on it. You may find Kids Place menu options in one of the following places:
To remove an app from Kids Place, please go to Kids Place menu > select apps. In that screen you can tap on the app you want to remove. Selected apps are shown in white background and unselected apps are show in clear background.
Most likely the app is internally using another app that blocked. Please add dialer/contacts and phone app as approved app in Kids Place.
After this, please replicate by making/receiving a call and as soon as its blocked, you will see at the bottom of the screen a message to add the package/process to whitelist. Please tap it to add to whitelist
please go to settings > whitelist and tap on Last Blocked App button. It will add the package name of last blocked app on the text box above. Tap on add button to add this app to white list. Once you have done it, please give it another try.
Can you please try to open the app that is being blocked and as soon as its blocked, please go to settings > whitelist and tap on Last Blocked App button.

Whitelist option allows you add an app (package name) as approved app without it being added on home screen. This comes in handy, when an approved app is being blocked because its internally using another app that you may not want to show on Kids Place Home Screen. You can either manually add the package name (its typically in this format com.something.appname) in the text box or try to open the app that is being blocked and as soon as its blocked, please go to settings > whitelist and tap on Last Blocked App button. It will add the package name of last blocked app on the text box above. Tap on add button to add this app to white list.
Yes. Please go to kids place settings > parental controls > check “allow kids to switch user” option. This will add a menu option in kids palce home screen for kids to switch user.
Please use our Kids Safe Video Player plugin app for filtering YouTube or other videos on device:

This occurs when you don’t have the “Lock home button” setting checked. The setting temporarily changes the default home of your Android device and is more secure than relying on special logic to push you back into Kids Place. It is recommended you check “Lock home button”.
Please go to Kids Place settings > Manage User and long press on User icon to edit user including PIN.
There is nothing special required to uninstall Kids Place. Please first exit out of Kids Place using your PIN. Once you are out of Kids Place, you can uninstall the app by going to your device settings > applications > manager applications > Kids Place > uninstall.
If the uninstall button is not available or greyed out than most likely you have checked “block uninstall” option under Kids Place advance settings. Please go back to Kids Place menu > advance settings > uncheck “block uninstall” option. You can than exit Kids Place and uninstall the app from device settings > application manager.
At the moment the Fire doesn’t offer a clean way of accessing your books from within Kids Place, however the following method allows you to read books on Kindle while Kids Place app protection is still enabled:
1) Add the Kindle Free time app to Kids Place
2) Add Kids Place app to Kindle Free Time app
3) Start Kids Place from Kindle Free Time app
Books can than be accessed from Kindle Free Time app.
For 1st Gen Kindle Device, please add Kindle Launcher to Kids Place.
Use the Fire Launcher book area to choose which book to read. The launcher is required because it is presently the only app that has the ability to switch between the books – the Kindle app can only view a single book at a time.
Even though you now have given your child access to the Fire launcher, the good news is that your device will still be locked down for things other than books – they will still be prevented from doing things you don’t want them to be doing like purchasing videos, music or running apps that are not in Kids Place.
We are presently looking into ways to expose the books from within Kids Place itself and not have to resort to the Fire Launcher. We may have something in a few versions down the line.
Some Huawei devices do not allow 3rd party apps to replace home button app. However, Kids Place will still block if home button is pressed and will redirect user to kids place.
