Can kids block be set up for an Echo Show 10?
This is a very important question – glad you’re thinking about the right way for your granddaughter to access Alexa!
First up, I am not sure what you mean by the term “kids block”. Amazon’s parental controls are called “Freetime”, and those controls are available across other Amazon devices like Fire TV and Kindle.
Amazon Freetime lets you determine what access children in the household have through Alexa, and provides a Parent Dashboard to monitor what content your kids are using and for how long, plus set time limits and pause use of devices for certain periods of time. Additionally, the Explicit Filter is turned on for Music (to prevent the child hearing bad words).
To get started, having your daughter open the Alexa app on her phone and go through the following steps to turn on “Freetime”.
- Open the Alexa app.
- Select “Devices” at the bottom”, then select “Echo and Alexa”.
- Select the child’s Echo device.
- Scroll down to “Freetime” and select it, then toggle the slider to “enable”.
- A new window will open up that will walk you though the setup process to create an Amazon account for the child with appropriate settings.
Once the child’s account has been set up, it can be modified to ensure it has the correct settings for your granddaughter.
Hopefully that gets you on your way!
