I have Kaspersky Safe Kids activated on the Android tablet for my kids. I blocked most of the content (e.g. installing from Google play, ...). They have 2-3 games they are allowed to play. But there are advertisement part of these games that are pointing to other games and they are able to install these games.

Please how can I restrict my kids to install anything on the tablet?

Thanks and best regards,

Jaro

  1. Age of child - 11
  2. I installed 3-4 games (Real Racing 3, Real Bike Racing, Real farming Sim 3D 2019, MTD). Now I see many other games installed, e.g World of Tanks, Transformers, Tank Stars, Pocket World 3D, Bus Simulator: Ultimate. I don't know how but Google Play store is blocked by Safe Kids.

Hello @jarom

Welcome!

Please tell us:

  1. Your children’s birth year ? 
  2. An example of the games, to enable us to test, to see the problem & try to find a solution? 
  3. Is KSK Premium or Free? 

Please let us know?

Hello  @jarom
Thank you for the information:ok_hand_tone3:

  1. Uninstall all games.
  2. Clean phone apps data & cache: open Phone →  Settings, select Storage, select Other apps, scroll thu to make sure there are no Games, if there are any Games, clear cache & data & do the uninstall steps again. 
  3. Shutdown phone - power OFF, restart, login. 
  4. Download permitted games.
  5. Change Google Play store to Forbidden.
  6. Start a permitted game, KSK will block, select Ask for permission, KSK will send an alert, grant permission to game, start playing the game, select or allow the ad to run, when the embedded game "install now" prompt shows, select the prompt, KSK will block, if your child requests permission, select Deny. 
  7. Each time your child selects the ad & request for an embedded game, you can deny or simply not bother to respond, he/she will not be able to install & play any game other than those you've specifically permitted. 

Note: The KSK alert you receive for a game you’re allowing will show the actual game name → image 2 below. The alerts you receive each time your child tries to access an embedded game (from advertising), will show “Child name, asks to allow the application Google Play Store” → image 4 below. 

 

Block games

Child requests permission for allowed game

Allowed game will still show Forbidden

Decline or ignore requests (from child), each time a game from an ad is selected

Make sure Google Play Store is Forbidden 

Make sure Settings is Forbidden

 

Any problems, concerns, questions, please do not hesitate to post back?
