    Default Stuck in kids mode!!

    Help! I'm stuck in kids mode on my daughters galaxy tab 3 for kids. I have no idea what the password is to get to the parent settings. Is there a way to reset a password from kids mode?

    Anybody believe this isn't the kid trying to bypass parental controls?


    Is there an option for "Forgot my password"? That will send an email to the registered account with reset instructions.

    I am the parent I swear.
    We bought it for my 5 year old for her b-day and it won't let me out of the kids mode. The instructions say 0000 is the factory password, but that doesn't work. I'm afraid she just unknowingly just pressed a bunch of # b/4 I tried to set it up.
    I haven't seen the option "forgot password". I tried 10+ codes hoping it would offer something like that but it hasn't.

    One(only?) option is factory reset.
    Try these in order listed on page:
    Reset: Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 | T-Mobile Support
    I'm not sure if a cache wipe will allow boot up into parents mode, but it should let you boot up to it if it's the default mode. Otherwise, hope she didn't load too much un-replaceable data on it!

    I am also stuck in Kid's Mode.
    Shrink says he can turn me into a responsible adult in 10 months.
    No way! I'm 55 and want my toys!

    I imagine it's to late to help the original poster but hopefully it'll help someone else.

    Wiping the cache didn't work for me. What did work was to boot into safe mode then uninstall kids mode.

    • Power Down
    • Turn on phone normally
    • Hold volume down while phone boots
    • Unlock phone
    • Select "TouchWiz Home"
    • Open App Drawer
    • Find "Kids Mode" icon
    • Touch and hold icon
    • Drag to uninstall
    • Reboot phone to exit safemode

    If I do the safe mode will I lose all of my pictures and information on my phone? My 2 year old some how locked me out and I cannot get out of kids mode, but I do not want to do a factory reset because I have tons of pictures and videos of my kids saved on my phone that I have not been able to back up yet.
