Is there any way to stop the Kindle Fire HD from showing in the carousel all new purchases sent to any kindle, that is show only purchases sent to that kindle?
I bought a Kindle Fire HD for my teenager for Christmas. She had a kindle keyboard before, and I could always just buy books for her and send to her device when I bought them. It did not, however, show her all of the books that I purchased and sent to my kindle. Of course she could go to the archives/cloud and download anything, but that's not quite the same as putting it right in her face on the carousel. I immediately removed all of my books from the kindle carousel after it arrived and left only her books on there. I did an experiment and bought myself a kindle book from the computer and sent it to my kindle. Sure enough, it showed up on the carousel for her kindle fire. I sometimes read more mature titles that I wouldn't like to end up on her kindle carousel.
I looked into Kindle Freetime, but that seems more for younger children. It won't allow her to use social media like facebook, which I am okay with. And it won't let her buy books, which I am also okay with.
I guess it might be time to set her up with her own amazon account, but then she'd lose all of the books she had on her kindle keyboard. It's so frustrating not to have better control of what shows up on the device!
Anyway, I think the answer is probably that there's nothing that can be done, but if anyone has any ideas or advice, I'd really appreciate it.
