Amazon now lets you adjust parental controls for its Fire tablets from anywhere

Amazon is improving its parental control board to allow parents to adjust FreeTime settings, such as screen time limits, curfews before bedtime, applications included in the whitelist and much more from any Web navigator. Previously, those controls could only be changed from the Fire tablet of the current children's edition. Now it can be accessed and updated from any smartphone or PC to which a parent has access. They can also enable or disable the web browser remotely.

The Parental Dashboard allows parents to remotely monitor the content (applications, games, videos, e-books, etc.) that their children use in the company's children-oriented tablets. It provides daily, weekly and monthly activity reports, which help parents feel confident about what their children see and how they spend their time in front of the screen without having to constantly look over their shoulder.

Since last year, Amazon also showed "discussion cards" to help parents engage in conversation about the content their children are interested in. Hopefully, if you are a parent, you already have an idea of ​​what your children think and are able to talk about those things without cheating cards, but sometimes it is difficult to keep up with this, so it is good that the option is there if you need it.

Parent Dashboard is available exclusively to parents who own a Fire 7 Kids Edition or Fire 8 Kids Edition currently enrolled in the company's FreeTime service, which provides access to 15,000 curated applications, games, videos and educational content of the "I like "PBS, Disney and Nickelodeon. One year of FreeTime Unlimited is included with each tablet purchase; After that, they are $ 2.99 per month. The ability to control settings remotely is something parents should opt for. "All previous FreeTime configurations will be restored, but parents will be able to reset and manage their parental controls immediately" after turning on the feature, Amazon says.
