Android Market Parental Controls

I don’t know if I missed this previously, but there are finally control in the Android Market that allow for parental restriction of apps based on their rating.

  1. Open the Android Market app
  2. Press the menu button
  3. Select the content filtering level
  4. Look in the top right corner for a lock icon, click it!
  5. Set a password

Boom! The Android Market is now restricted.

This doesn’t restrict sideloading, but it does restrict the easiest vector for installing applications.

note: This post is to address an earlier post I’ve written which maintains one of the most popular on the site: Android and Droid: Parental Guidance Suggested.
