Kindle tip: Parental controls

Basic Kindle, Paperwhite and now Kindle Keyboard (3rd gen) with recent updates have 3 options for parental control: Experimental Web Browser, Archived Items, and the Kindle Store.

Go to Menu, settings then scroll throug
h to get to this section.

They are independent, so you can block 1, 2 or all 3 of these.

  •  If you block Kindle store, you can still buy through a computer and send books to the Kindle. This means you can control what the kids are buying without de-registering the kindle completely.
  • Blocking archives means the kids can't access anything in your library that you don't want them to see
 If you didn't receive a recent update, see the Update Page for details.
For past tips, see the menu at the top of the page!
