How do I remove the Kindle Free Time app on the Kindle Fire HD? I have no use for it and it's just a waste of space.

I don't think you can remove this app. I went through the app removal process (per the user guide) and uninstall is not an option

@nance: You can't remove any pre-installed apps. I can't do it on my non-Amazon tablet either.

I tried to remove free time since I don't use or need it. But the application will not delete. So I guess some of the basic applications are designed to remain.

Umm I'm sorry to say that is impossible to delete this app. I hope I was able to help

This is precisely why Fud should be banned from these forums. He's rude to someone for no particular reason, then, months later, someone else wanders across the thread and sees it. He's like a bad toe fungus... completely useless and hard to get rid of.

I believe it is considered a feature.

First things kids would do is remove the application controlling their use of the device...pretty good reason to bake it into the machine. :)

Same reason most good anti-virus programs are not easy to remove from a PC as the first thing the bad guys try is to remove it when infecting a system.

It is even better to use an operating system where you don't have to worry about running an anti virus program. Go Linux :)

First virus in the wild was written for UNIX. I'd not be too cocky. :) Only reason you don't see more attacks is the bad guys put their resources where the mass targets are. But there's plenty of nasty stuff aimed your way also:

click on to the kindle free time icon, hold until it is encirlcled, an orange icon will appear in top left hand corner of your screen that says remove, click on that. Will be removed. Don't forget to remove from your carrasol in the same way. Jackie

On my Kindle Paperwhite, press the Freetime icon and hold for a moment. A dialog box will come up with "Turn Off FreeTime". That will remove the icon.

Yes, but forcing someone to keep it is jackboot/Nazis
nazzi. Some of us don't have children and don't need it, also some of us can keep things safe from children because we are adults and know how to lock things up. Like in a safe. I am not saying this sarcastically. I am just stating the fact that I don't need Amazon to babysit me or my children for me.

Then don't buy Amazon's devices. Pretty simple. Pretty much any tablet you buy will have apps you cannot remove. Live with it or stay away. Again, pretty simple.

Every tablet manufacturer I know does the same thing.... Apple, Samsung,.... all have apps that cannot be removed...
