    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 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.

    Sorry you didn't receive an answer. Safe Mode would not wipe anything. I hope you got it sorted.
    If a post gets overlooked, you can start a thread of your own. It's not against the rules afaik. Or just bump your question by asking again.
    Welcome.

    Hello. Are you asking the same question, and have you tried the safe mode option and other suggestion.

    I am about to lose my ever loving mind with this kids tab!! I, too, am locked in kids mode and the 0000 pin isn't working. My daughter can't remember which 4 numbers she bumbled through to get to the games when she opened this gift yesterday morning. I have tried everything recommended in this post and nothing's working. The only success I've had is putting it in safe mode, but my problem is that I am stuck in kids mode and I can't do anything, anything, anything in kids mode but play these dumb little games - so safe mode really doesn't help when you're stuck in kid's mode. You can't uninstall anything - only play games, change the screen brightness, and rotation options. Holding down power + volume-up does absolutely nothing even when I release them in the various combinations recommended in the various instructions I've tried so far. And no, in her haste, my daughter did not link this tab to any email address that might verify a pin/password for me. I'm regretting this purchase - that they didn't think, hmm, what if a child runs off, opens it up, and jumps right in without doing any of the proper, adult registration/setup? - About to pull my hair out

    Well I had the same problem with an S5. However, I managed to enter 0000 a few times then a forgot password link came up. Clicked on the 'forgot password' option which took me to the alternate password entry (which I also forgot LoL). So I entered 0000 in the alternate password option about twice and bingo... It asked me to enter a new password, followed by confirm new password. Thats what worked for me. Hope it helps anyone else who may still be stuck in kids mode.

    Unfortunately not everything goes as planned. yes all those methods worked but once you go back to your main phone the status bar does not work and main button you need to reboot the whole phone. mind you i say back up all your things from your phone on to external drives so the data be saved. mind you do this if this happens to you as well
