Your Kindle Fire has parental controls that block users from accessing certain types of content. Despite the name, parental controls aren't just for children. If you share the Kindle with an employee or business partner, for example, you might use controls to restrict him from buying content with your Amazon Store account. You can turn off all parental controls or enable some while disabling others.


Step 1

Go to the Kindle Fire's home screen. Swipe your finger down from the top of the screen to open the notification bar.

Step 3

Tap "Off" next to Parental Controls to disable all controls. If you want to restrict certain features while allowing others, leave this set to "On."

Step 4

Select the content you want to allow or restrict when parental controls are enabled. For example, tap "Off" next to Password-Protect Purchases, Password-Protect Wi-Fi and Password-Protect LBS to disable each control. Tap "Block and Unblock Content Types" to select content to block, such as games, music or apps.


Step 5

Tap "Home" to return to the home screen. The Kindle Fire saves your settings automatically.
