How to Set Up Parental Controls for Android Apps

A free online safety guide on how to set up parental controls for Android apps.

Most smartphones allow parents and carers to choose which apps and features appear on their child’s device and which ones don’t – also preventing young people from buying and downloading anything that’s unsuitable for their age. Our #WakeUpWednesday guides to parental controls for managing apps on Androids will help you to reduce the chance of your child using a game or app that might not be appropriate for their age.

In the guide, you'll find tips on a number of tips such as how to block app downloads, how to stop auto-updates and how to restrict apps.
