With KidiConnect™, kids can use their KidiBuzz™ to send messages to a parent-approved list of contacts.
But you have to unlock KidiConnect™ on your child's device first. You will automatically be prompted to unlock KidiConnect™ on your child's device when you register it.
If you skipped this part during registration, then follow the instructions below to unlock KidiConnect™ later on.
Original Kidibuzz™ System:First, touch the avatar in the upper left corner of your child's Home screen, then touch the Parents icon to enter Parent Settings.
Kidibuzz G2™ System:First, swipe to the second page of your child's Home screen, then touch the Parents icon to enter Parent Settings.
Tap on KidiConnect from your child's desktop.
Tap "Yes" to unlock KidiConnect for your child, and then enter your Parental Controls passcode.
Scroll to the bottom of the next page and tap the checkboxes to confirm that you agree to the Terms and Conditions and are over 18 and assume resonsibility for your child's use. Then touch "Continue."
Because of a federal law known as the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), we must obtain verifiable parental consent before we can allow your child to use the KidiConnect™ service.
First, read the details about VTech's policies with regards to your child's personal information. Then, touch "I Agree" to give your consent.
Next, we must verify that the consent you're providing is being given by an adult (also a requirement of COPPA) by processing a $0.50 charge to your credit card.
Input your credit card information and touch "Pay Now". (We will not store your credit card information.)
A screen will appear to confirm that your verification charge processed.
KidiConnect™ is now unlocked on your child's device.
You still need to install the KidiConnect™ app on a mobile device so you can finish setting up profiles for yourself and your child, manage your child's contacts, and communicate with your child.
