Can the tablet stay in kid mode, so that when they turn it off and back on it is still in kid mode? Or does the free time app need to be reopened each time?

Interesting question. I had to check. The Kindle FreeTime app remains active even when the KFHD is shut down and restarted.

Cool, thanks! If I give one to my kids, I'd rather they can use it on their own without me logging them into it each time....

Happy to help. I knew that if the KFHD was put to sleep it would return to FreeTime. Just needed to check that shutting down or rebooting the device would yield the same result.

I should, however, mention one issue that another user noted about FreeTime use for multiple kids. If you have separate user profiles for your kids, you will have to exit FreeTime (with the passcode) and start it again to allow a second kid's profile to be selected. This is something of a "pita" if, say, you're in the car with two kids in the back trying to share the device.

The only solution to this issue is to have a single user profile that the two kids can share or be willing to exit the app whenever the device is passed from one kid to the other. It's a pretty obvious oversight in the implementation of FreeTime. Hopefully, Amazon will recognize the problem and fix it in a future update.

Swipe down from the top of the main screen to open settings. Then "More>Help & Feedback>User Guide" Alternatively, use your Prime membership and access the Amazon "Books>Store" Search for "Kindle Fire HD" and download one of the guides as part of the Kindle Fire Lending Library.

You input the password that was set up when Free Time was enabled.

How do I delete Amazon Free Time? I can't do a lot of things because they are blocked. I just want it gone from my kindle fire. I need your help. How long before we get an answer?

You can't delete FreeTime. You can exit it with your parent password and change the settings on the Fire to allow you access to everything.
