Reset?

I set my password as "1" and can switch between parental or not. I don't typically deregister a device I use (other than the mess that is going on now), but with the controls on, you can't use the shop from the device. Meh, no biggie. I use my iPad for that anyway.
If the PW freezes up and cannot open, the reset option may be your only salvation. With parental controls on you may have to send it back to Amazon to get the reset.

Also, if stolen, the first step is to deregister it. If you can't do that, again you will have to call Amazon.

If you have parental controls off and it is stolen and books are purchased before you deregister it, you can call Amazon to have the book purchases reversed.

My Kindle Fire does not have this problem. However, there, if parental controls are on, then one cannot access the internet. Thus, even with that one I disabled parental controls.

Really? I was not aware of these implications, but would like to keep my home page for my books.

Great catch. Those pics still look much better than those that I've seen posted.

Can you not turn parental control on and off at will? Is it a one time setting?

It was a link to pictures that Amazon had posted showing what their screens look like under real world conditions.

When I see the pictures they still do not look real. I do not mean the desplay (only a little bit). I mean how she holds the Kindle. I have the feeling it must drop any second.
At least I could not hold my KNT this way.

I like my Paperwhite, but my real reader of choice would be the one shown in this video.

Me too!

It looks like they glued the kindles to their fingers. Screen looks nice.

You can turn parental controls off and on at will. The problem is, if frozen, you won't be able to access the parental controls and you won't be able to do a reset.

Also, if stolen, you will not be able to turn off the parental controls or deregister it.
