I have a new kindle, I've only had it for 2 days. I set up the kid settings in Kindle Free Time. My daughter tried it for the first time today, and now there is no option or way to exit the kindle free time function.

Swipe to bring down the menue from the top of the page. "Exit free time" should be right there. You have to sign out with your parental control password.

is there a place to go to retrieve your parental control password? I don't want to clear out my whole kindle just to get the free time off! It originally let me in but now it won't let us out or back in!

Nope. You and you alone know the password.

If you've lost the password, you'll have to reset.

First, try a deregister from, and then reregister to your account.

When I swipe down while in Free Time, there is no option displayed that says "Exit Free Time". It only says " Brightness", "Wireless", Exit Profile", and "Settings". None of these choices give me an option to exit Free Time.

On my son's 'Freetime,' where you see 'exit profile,' I see 'exit freetime.' Try tapping 'exit profile.'

Thanks. I ended up doing that and going to my profile. My daughter's profile seems to be in Free Time forever.

I no longer see exit profile. Now I see firefly. Help.

Did you ever get a reply to this? I am having the same problem. There is NO option to exit freetime anymore. Only options are auto-rotate, brightness, wireless, firefly....??????

I'd like to get emails when new post are made, so posting again with that box checked (sorry).

I'm having the same issue with that Firefly taking the place of Exit Profile. Completely shutting down the Kindle and restarting will temporarily fix it but that's really annoying to have to do that. I'd love a better fix.

I solved the issue by shutting down, but holding down the "off" button for 30 seconds. I had read that in a different forum. That seemed to fix it. My son didn't say that that issue reappeared, but seems like that might be an issue from what Michelle says above. Hmmmmm. Thanks for the info.
