With the advancement of technology and introduction of online classes, children are gaining more access to smartphones and tablets. While these devices can be great educational tools, they also come with potential risks.

To ensure your child stays safe while using these devices, it's important to set them up with effective child protection.

In this article, we will share a detailed method on how to make your Android smartphone and digital devices childproof.

Setup child-proof Android smartphone:

If you want to give your child their own Android phone or tablet, Google has many ways to keep them safe.

They have special tools to protect children from things they shouldn't see or do on the device.

To get started, you will need to install the "Google Family Link" application on your smartphone. This will allow you to prepare a protected Google account for your child.

Step 1: First, you've set up the protected account.

Step 2: The Family Link application will automatically set itself up as the "Device Administrator." (This makes it difficult for your child to bypass the safety precautions and child protection guidelines you have set.) 

Step 3: Now, you will have extensive control options remotely from your own smartphone. These options include limiting the maximum usage time of the smartphone per day, determining bedtimes, limiting or completely preventing the use of individual apps, sharing websites individually or trusting Google's Parental Controls filter, seeing where your child is at the moment, and locking the smartphone instantly.

How to secure your smartphone for your child:

If you do not want to provide your child with their own smartphone or tablet, but still want to give them access to your device, there are ways to make your device childproof.

One option is to use a third-party app, such as AppLock or Norton App Lock, to lock individual apps or the entire device.

This will prevent your child from accessing sensitive information or making unauthorized purchases.

By following the steps outlined in this article, you can give your child access to the educational and entertainment benefits of technology while keeping them protected from potential risks.
