How to set up parental controls on Android

Are you one of the many parents who allow their children to play on your Android device? If so, you might want to look into the setting of the control of the parents, in order to protect them from applications of adult content in the Android Market. Do parental controls as proof make-up? Of course not, kids always find ingenious ways to circumvent security systems that we have implemented. But this, at least, give them a place to crash and give you peace of mind knowing that at least tried!

The following are the levels of maturity that all applications on Android Market are classified as:
  • everyone
  • low maturity
  • medium maturity
  • high maturity

Just go to the App Market and then click on the MENU button on the Droid. Then click on the Settings button. Then you see one of the following screens:

Click the drop-down menu below to select content filtering and level of maturity that you (or your child) will be allowed to download. After that, you need to click the lock icon pad or "Set PIN or modify" the password you set a PIN to lock the settings you have just made.

That's it! Now the Android Market will only be allowed to install applications that have been considered appropriate for the level of maturity set. Let us know if you have any questions by leaving a comment in the section below.
