Parental control app 6.3.11 update???

HI Well I had My Wi fi on for about ten minutes last friday and they sneaked in the the 6.31 update

Not causing any issues but I am curious about the "parental controls" app that has appeared

It does not launch or do anything
I dont share my device with anyone so I dont actually need this app.

It seems it is one of those "firmware" apps that wont let me delete it but I would like to know why this dead Icon is not active.

It comes with version 6.3.1. If you tap it, you can turn on Parental Controls with a password. I use it to block the web browser, turn on the same password to prevent accidental purchases, I leave the password protect on video playback off and the password protect WiFi off.

The main reason I use it is to protect accidental ebook purchases.

Tap Settings \ Sync. Maybe you did not get a full install before.
