Approved Sites - With this option you can add or remove sites from the approved list of your child's web browser.

Note: You must first turn on the web browser in App Settings to enable child access to the browser before you can manage approved sites.

Although VTech makes every effort to create a kid-friendly browsing experience, VTech does not maintain these third-party sites, so enabling the Web Browser could allow your child to access content that is not intended for children.
