The Amazon Fire tablet is one of the cheapest tablets available, and it’s ideal for kids. It can be used to read Kindle ebooks, play games, watch videos, and use social media. Plus, it comes with Amazon’s most comprehensive set of parental controls. In this article, we’ll show you how to set a volume limit on a fire tablet.
All Fire tablets run on Fire OS, a custom version of Android that does a great job of serving up Kindle ebooks, Prime Video offerings, and Amazon Music playlists in an easy-to-navigate format. Fire OS also makes it easy to set up a parental lock.
To turn on parental controls, swipe down from the top of the screen and tap Settings. Then, slide the switch to On and enter a password. Once the switch is on, a lock icon appears in the corner of the screen.
While the Fire tablet is a solid choice for kids, we recommend getting one with a dedicated case and a stand to keep it in place. That way, it’s less likely to get knocked around and cracked by kids who like to tinker with their devices. It’s also worth considering the Fire 7 Kids Edition (2022), which gets a slight power boost, a hefty case, and a 2-year damage protection plan. It’s perfect for kids and comes in two variants, based on age range. You can also add hands-free Alexa to your Fire tablet for even more control.
