Full Answer

Parental controls allows the user to restrict specific apps on the device, remove the ability to download any free or paid apps, disable in-app purchases or disable specific content types. Users can only circumvent these restrictions with the user-set parental controls password or a factory reset.

The Kindle Fire also offers a feature called Kindle FreeTime. FreeTime allows parents to choose and purchase appropriate content for their children or to subscribe for unlimited access to children's apps. It also provides time limits and daily educational goals.
