Amazon explains web-browsing controls on Fire Kids tablets

Fire Kids and Kids Pro tablets offer web-browsing controls to give parents and guardians peace of mind while their kids learn and explore online.
The built-in controls help filter out inappropriate websites, and it’s easy for adults to personalise access to parent-approved websites and channels—and to know what content their kids are accessing online.
Automated digital boundaries help families manage an ever-changing digital environment. Features included in the Fire Kids and Kids Pro tablets are designed to be flexible, with functions and filter levels that can be adjusted as kids grow. Plus, the option to opt in or out of features is available at any time, as a child’s needs and maturity levels change. Those modifications happen instantly and seamlessly to enable quick access to a blocked site or filtered content when it is needed.

Web-browsing controls can be customised for each child in the free Amazon Parent Dashboard. Parents and guardians can select as many preferences as they wish. They can even configure the look of the web browser to allow or disable the address bar, search features, and access to favourite content.

The web browser on Parents Dashboard offers parents and guardians two ways for their children to access the web. The options are listed under “Child Settings,”. The first option is hand-selected websites and videos, limiting access to what has been pre-selected by Amazon Kids and by the parent or guardian. The second option is filtered websites and videos, which provides a more open but filtered experience with built-in controls that filter out inappropriate content. Either way, parents can always monitor their child’s browsing history.
