Child Bypassing Safe Kids

My subscription is about to end.  I am wondering if the program is worth it because my son continually manages to turn off KSK on his phone (Android 8.1)and install apps that are blocked.  He claims KSK turns off on its’ own.  On his PC running window 10 I set a time limit and as soon as he logs in the he can run straight for 24 hours.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled KSK on both devices and updated the app and it still doesn’t work.  He does not have the password.

Hello @tomballian,

Thank you for the report.

Please provide the following:

  1. For Android, open phone :gear: Settings, scroll to the bottom of the screen, select “About” or “About phone”)
  2. Window 10 operating system version & build? (Type    winver  in Windows Search:mag: field)
  3. For Windows, I don’t understand the remark “ KSK not working and disconnected.”, is KSK uninstalled on the Windows device? If not, select KSK shortcut on your desktop, or go to Windows Start Menu, select All programs, find KSK, start KSK, on the Windows Taskbar, rightclick KSK icon, select “About”? 
  4. May I have an image of the Application categories please? 
  5. May I know the age of your child please? 
  6. Have you enabled “Age restrictions based on public age-appropriate ratings”?
  7. Re “All of the App Categories had switched to Allowed”, does that mean “previously”, all Appplication Categories were not “Allowed”, and now all Application Categories are now “Allowed”?
  8. Of these KSK categories: Where is my childInternetDevice useApplicationsSocial networks, Profile - which categories have been configured? 

Please post back or, you may prefer to raise a case with Kaspersky Technical Support
