    How about allowing the blocking of apps (e.g. Internet, youtube and twitter) before I can actually give this to my kid?

      Hi Joseph! Thank you for reaching out. Blocking of apps is not supported on KaiOS devices. We are aware of the importance of this feature. I will send your request to our engineers for future consideration.
