Microsoft has officially confirmed that they are removing Kids Corner feature from Windows 10 Mobile.
Kid’s Corner is a feature that was first introduced in Windows Phone 8 that allows the user to put their phone in a special mode for kids, in which only the apps and media they specify can be accessed. An app can detect at run time if it is running in Kid’s Corner mode and modify its behavior and UI to be appropriate for a child user.
In a blog post, Here’s what Microsoft announced:
After taking a look at the overall usage of the Kids Corner feature in Windows 10 Mobile and Windows Phone 8.1, we have decided to remove this feature from Windows 10 Mobile beginning with the Windows 10 Anniversary Update. The usage of Kids Corner was too low to justify continued development and support of the feature. While not a replacement with the same functionality, you can try out Apps Corner under Settings > Accounts > Apps Corner which has some of the functionality as Kids Corner such as the ability to give people access to selected apps on your phone as well as a customized Start screen when they use your phone.
As you can see. the removal is starting with the upcoming Anniversary update. Do you use Kids Corner feature in Windows 10 Mobile? Tell us in the comments section.
