Blocking Websites On Samsung Galaxy S8 And Galaxy S8+ Plus

If you are a parent then have to be aware that it is possible that your child could come across adult content on any device like the Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ Plus. Third party applications in Google Play can pop up explicit pages you wouldn’t want your child coming across. Even simple word searches could bring up pages on the first pages of Google search. We bring you good news. It is very possible to restrict all of this.

You all know that as parents, we will occasionally hand our phones to our kids to keep them a little occupied as you attend to other errands. If you are such a person, then you should seriously consider acting on these restrictions on your device.

Kids will always seem to be one step ahead of their parents when it matters to do with technology. Creating restrictions will control the pages your children visit as well as the images they should not view on Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ Plus.
