The Kindle Fire has just received a new firmware update that brings it to version 6.31. This update brings additional parental controls to Kindle Fire, including the ability to password-protect purchases, disable access to specific content libraries, and block access to the Silk web browser. It seems though it does not prompt you for a password to factory reset the device. Many parents are saying their kids are defaulting the device to gain access to the password protected content.
As with all software updates, these new features will be delivered automatically to your Kindle Fire. If you can’t wait for the new update you can download and install it manually HERE.
