Hi, everyone. We recently got our first tablet, an Acer Iconia A1-810. It's technically our 6-year-old's, so there are quite a few games/learning apps on it, all ones we've purchased to avoid him clicking on ads. However, like most kids he's curious enough to discover the inner workings of the tablet and is always in the Google Play store, trying to download new games. And as hard as we've tried to avoid any games with ads, ads do occasionally pop up.
My question: is there any way to "lock" the button in the lower centre of the screen that takes one directly to all the apps on the device? Or any way to lock particular apps to make them inaccessible? Can anyone offer any other tips to make this device a bit more child-friendly/child "proof"? Even hiding certain things in the app screen?
Thanks for any tips/advice.
