How To: Unlock Parental Controls

First thing you're probably wondering: What do parental controls do? Here's a list:

  • Clearing caches: Very exciting! This is a common tech fix for us!
  • Unlocking Google Login accessibility: Tantalizing! This is the method to get the phone hooked up to a Google account for all of the Google apps you may (or may not) use.
  • That's it! I know, exciting features! All of the cool stuff is on the Caregiver portal!

Here's how you unlock all of these controls:

  1. Swipe to the right, to the apps screen
  2. Tap on "Pinwheel Settings"
  3. Press the lock on the top right and type in your PIN (if you haven't done this yet, the default is the last 4 of your Pinwheel ID)
  4. Done! Easy!
