AMAZON’S WORLD CLASS PARENTAL CONTROLS
FreeTime lets parents set daily limits, or restrict certain categories – like video – while leaving unlimited time for reading. FreeTime allows parents to set screen time limits, bedtimes, specific apps, games, videos, and books they want added to the child’s device.
AGE-APPROPRIATE CUSTOM PROFILES
FreeTime Smart Filters ensure that your child sees age-appropriate content within FreeTime Unlimited. We use input from Common Sense Media and from parents like you to ensure that pre-teens don’t get the baby stuff and little kids don’t see the scary stuff. Parents can also adjust Smart Filter settings to tailor the experience for each child.
