The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 and Galaxy S5 both come with the Kids Mode feature, although the former had a few differences that made it lack behind the latter, but this is no longer the case. The Galaxy Tab 4 has now received an Android update meaning Kids Mode for the tablet is now on par with Samsung’s flagship smartphone.

Kids Mode is a family friendly feature that allows you to lock certain parts of whatever device it is installed on, this case the Galaxy S5 and the Tab 4. They can still have access to the fun apps of your device, just not the areas you wish to remain out of bounds.
