Your child’s school along with many amazing scholastic resources are being provided for free right now, but setting them up on your child’s device is not always straight forward. Many of these materials have logins, or are hidden pages making them difficult to access behind parental controls. But do not fear! We can help you get some of these online resources set up on your child’s device.
This tutorial walks you through how to allow specific web page and web video content (like YouTube) to your child’s Amazon Fire Profile.
Swipe Down on the top of the Tablet screen and go to your profile icon if you are not logged in.
Then Select Settings (gear icon).
Select Profiles and Family Library
Then select your child’s profile
Scroll down to Web Settings, ensure that the Enable Web Browser option is selected or else any website’s or YouTube videos will be unavailable.
Select Limit Web Content
Then select the + button in the upper right corner of the screen to start adding the websites provided by your school.
**You will most likely have to type these web addresses in, unless you have access to these emails on the tablet, which you can copy and paste from.**
For each website that you want to allow, Select Allow in the upper right corner of the screen.
For YouTube and other video resources, select Web Videos
For each video you want to allow, enter in the web address, or search for the YouTube channel, select the video from the channel video list.
Select Allow in the upper right corner of the screen.
The Settings allow you to further control your child’s website usage. You will want to keep cookies active as your child’s progress in any school activity or test may be lost if you do not enable this. You may want to allow the Pre-Approved Web Content or not, it’s probably safer to allow it since it will reduce the likelihood of you accidentally blocking some of this content you have specifically added.
Finally, you will find all of this content on your child’s profile under “Added For You”
