Hi There,


I have a Samsung Android Tablet on which I am trying to create some user profiles for my kids to restrict them downloading any App. I cannot seem to find it in this new tablet. This tablet has the 4.4.1 version of Android OS. In the older version 4.2 I had the option to go to Settings >> Users tab to create different profile. But in the 4.4 version I can't seem to find these options. It only shows Add Account. But this wont give me any option to restrict downloading Apps. If any of you have any idea on how to achieve this restriction policy please reply. 


I know there are some apps that could do this type of User restrictions but I would prefer if there is anything inbuilt within Android.

Try tapping over settings and look out for option name "Users" tap over it and you can create multiple user accounts over your device.
