Google play books, and Amazon devices like the Kindle, have parental controls that allow parents to stop their children from downloading explicit sexual/violent books and comics.

But the Android Kindle App does not seem to have any. (Despite being a far more popular way for children to read books than either of the above).

Does anyone have a solution for this?

(I googled a lot but only got useless info: instructions for how to do it on Kindle Fire or other Kindle hardware; a family feature on Amazon https://parents.amazon.com.au/ to which you can add neither your kids Android devices nor their accounts; etc).

    From what I can tell the feature you desire is Amazon Household which would require separate accounts, however it doesn't appear to be available in Australia (from what I can gather). Dec 7, 2022 at 3:08
  • Thanks. It looks like this has some parental control features, yes. But I get "Your account is ineligible to add a teen". No explanation, but as you say, it looks like it's region locked. Once again a major tech company fails to understand the basics of the internet and restricts critical features to USA only for absolutely no reason at all. :(
