Set Up Parental Controls on Kindle Fire (2nd Generation) Devices

With Parental Controls, you can restrict access to Web browsing, shopping from the Amazon Store or Amazon Shop app, or playing Prime Video. Help for Kindle Fire (2nd Generation), Kindle Fire HD 7" (2nd Generation), and Kindle Fire HD 8.9" (2nd Generation).

To set up Parental Controls:

  1. Swipe down from the top of the screen to show Quick Settings, and then tap More.
  2. Tap Parental Controls and then tap On.
  3. Enter a password, confirm your password, and then tap Finish. Once you've set a password, you can restrict one or more of the following:
    • Web browsing
    • The Email, Contacts, and Calendars apps
    • The ability to purchase from the content stores on your device (for example, the Amazon Appstore)
    • The ability to play Prime Video
    • Specific content types (for example, Books or Apps)
    • Wireless connectivity
    • Location-based Services

Note: Make sure that you record your password. If you forget your Kindle Parental Controls password, you need to reset your Kindle Fire to factory defaults to restore full access. This removes all content and account information from your device. After resetting, you can reregister your Kindle Fire, and redownload your content from the Cloud. You can access and download your content from the Cloud at any time.

When you set up and enable Parental Controls, a lock image of a lock 
		  icon appears at the top of the screen.

Tip: You can use Kindle FreeTime to choose books, apps, games, and videos from your collection for your kids to enjoy while restricting access to other content on your device.
