Android Central Question

My kids have restricted profiles on my Samsung Galaxy tablet. The settings are good and I like the ability to control which apps they have access to. However, they are unable to sign in to their Google accounts on YouTube, as this appears to be a limitation of a Galaxy restricted profile. They already have Gmail accounts. Each time they try to sign in, they get an error message: "This change isn't permitted by your admin".

Since I am the admin, I would like to change this setting so that they can use their Gmail account to sign in to YouTube. Is there a way to access the settings to perform this change?

Welcome to Android Central! Are you using Google's Family Link? That prevents kids under 13 from using the full YouTube -- they have to use YouTube Kids. There's no way around that. If you're using a Samsung feature, it may be that they use that restriction as well, as it may be related to the COPPA laws.
