Set Up Parental Controls

With Parental Controls you can restrict access to shopping, web browser and the Cloud. You can also disable the ability to deregister and reset your Kindle (5th Generation).

Note: When access to the Kindle Store is locked on your device, you can continue to purchase content on your computer and deliver it to your Kindle. For more information, go to Use to Deliver Books.

  1. From Home, press the Menu button, and then select Settings.
  2. Turn one page, and then select Set next to Parental Controls.
  3. Select Turn off to require a password for access to any of the Parental Control options (Web Browser, Kindle Store, Cloud).
  4. Enter your Parental Controls password, and then select Submit to save your settings.

When Parental Controls are set, a lock icon appears at the top of the screen.
