Amazon now allows parents to remotely control FreeTime settings

by John_A

No more snooping over your kid’s shoulder.

When it comes to parental controls for mobile gadgets, Amazon’s FreeTime system is one of the best around. FreeTime allows parents to set a number of limits on their children’s Fire Tablets, but until now, these settings were only accessible on the tablet itself.

Starting today, however, Amazon is giving parents remote access to these things.

By going to the Amazon Parent Dashboard from a phone, tablet, or desktop, parents will be able to set and control screen-on limits, curfews, block certain apps/games, and more.

These new controls will be joining the rest of the features found on the Parent Dashboard, including stats on what kind of content your kids are consuming, how much time they’re spending on their tablets, and Amazon’s “discussion cards” that aim to help parents talk to their kids about the books, movies, and games they’re viewing.

Parents can access the new remote controls by going to parents.amazon.com.
