After installing Kaspersky Safe Kids on your child's mobile device, you must configure the app for use by your child. Once your child's device is configured, age restrictions and other protection settings are applied.

At first startup, follow the instructions in the app.

When configuring Kaspersky Safe Kids, you install a configuration profile. The configuration profile includes the settings needed to protect your child.

The configuration profile must be reinstalled if:

  • Your child advances to the next age category. Your child's age category is determined as of January 1 of the current year.
  • Protection settings for Internet monitoring are changed.
  • Protection settings for app monitoring are changed.

If you finish configuring the app and later decide to configure Kaspersky Safe Kids for use by a parent, you must uninstall the app and then install the app again.

To configure Kaspersky Safe Kids for use by a child and turn on protection:

  1. Start Kaspersky Safe Kids on your child's mobile device.
