    Although i locked my phone with fingerprint, my BF usually know my mobile phones’ PIN. So he also can unlock my phone.And my young nephew also like to play games on my phone, he will carelessly click or delete some important messages in my phone. It was bothering for me.

    Yes with my permission. People I'm around don't just pick up my phone and go through it. Parents aren't techie enough to even turn my phone on.

    You don't leave your phone lying around so strangers can pick it up and use it?

    What's the make & model of your device? The reason I ask is Samsung smartphones & tablets have a "kids mode" you can set up so they can't mess with any of your main apps or settings. I believe some of the other manufacturers have similar options.
    Personally I treat my smartphone just like my computer, no kids allowed. They can play games on my older devices that I no longer use, but not my daily driver.
    As for your boyfriend, you need to have a serious discussion with him if he's violating your trust by going into your device without asking, but that's just me.

    I used Samsung smartphones before. Now, i'm using Mi phone. It didn't offer the kid mode for me. What's model of Samsung phone do you use now?

    Hey Cr6,

    Where is the kid mode of Samsung smartphones? I asked one of my friend who were using Samsung GALAXY S6. He told me that he never use it. I'm curious about this feature.

    It shouldn't be difficult to find out. I'm sure there is information on Samsung's website.

    It will be better to bring phone anytime. Curious, suspicious or jealous partners will not have a chance to pick it up.

    I think that's the point. I wouldn't be with someone who doesn't trust me, without trust, there isn't a relationship worth having. Friends or dating.

    That particular Kids Mode app is actually available for download in the Play Store for free. We downloaded it on older phones so my stepson could play games. We were happy to find that the newer Samsung phones come with it pre-installed.
