    Preventing children from seeing and buying inappropriate apps from Android market

    The Android market has no approval process for games and apps before they appear for purchase. Thus unsuitable games or apps will be seen by my children while they use the Android market. How to block my children from purchasing these kinds of apps and games?

    You can use content filtering and protect your children from buying these inappropriate apps. First of all, launch the Android market on your phone. Then press the menu button and go to the settings option. Find the content filtering option under the user controls in the settings option. Then press on the content filtering option to change the content filtering level. You will be listed four rated apps types: Everyone, Low Maturity, Medium Maturity and High Maturity. Then uncheck the type of games or applications you want to hide. Then hit OK button to proceed.
