I am a long time Blackberry user and purchased my first Android. Its the Galaxy S5. I have updated the OS up until the April 2017 Verizon release. I had a couple of questions.

  1. I want to delete the browser to make the phone child safe (we will use safe apps, rather than a browser). With Blackberry I was able to have 1 password for the device (that my son knew), and another password for parental controls (the feature that disabled the browser, the ability to download apps, etc). Is there a way to do that here?

  2. Is there a way to use such controls to stop the user from downloading and installing apps? I would control that?

I am not clear about S5. But my mobile, Huawei Mate 9, supports a 'Student mode' which would be helpful to you.

If you have enabled the mode, you can manage your child's phone habits. Let me show you a screenshot later. (smug)
