yesterday I bought an Ellipsis 8 for my kids to play games on, but I can't find anywhere that tells me how to turn it on kids mode...?

I want to limit time spent on device and no purchases without adults and no access to emails,etc? Is kids mode on this device?

It's an app that overlays and limits access to the other apps on the phone, and you need a passcode to get out of it. When  it's activated, you can only access the programs and apps that you have allowed.


There isn't an option (that I am aware of, with this app) that lets you limit the time spent in the app - I use it with my grandkids, ages, 5 & almost 4, and I simply set a timer, and when it goes off, it's time to do something else.  They don't always like it, but that;s the rules!
