Enabling Kids Mode on the Galaxy S5 is an easy way to protect the data stored on your device from small (and let's face it, less careful) hands.
Installing the app
1. Press and hold your finger on a Home screen with an open area (probably not your main Home screen) until the Shortcuts appear. Then tap Widgets at the bottom of the screen.
2. Press and hold the Kids Mode icon. This widget should already be installed on the phone when you get it.
Setting up Kids Mode
As soon as you finish installing the Kids Mode app, you'll be prompted to set it up. Start by tapping Set PIN.
1. Set and confirm a PIN. This PIN allows you access to the Parental Controls within the app and allows you to exit Kids Mode.
6. You'll see the screen that shows you how to access Parental Controls and how to exit Kids Mode. Tap the X in the top right hand corner.
