A free online safety guide on Amazon Fire Tablets.

The Amazon Fire Tablet is a popular choice: not only are Amazon’s own-brand devices more affordable than most other tablets on the market, but some models are designed specifically for youngsters (the Fire 7 Kids, Fire 8 HD and Fire HD 10 are aimed at ages 3–7, for example, while the ‘Pro’ range is geared toward 6 to 12-year-olds). Fires come with access to a wealth of entertaining content, from child-friendly TV shows and videos to age-appropriate games and ebooks. 

In the guide, you'll find tips on a number of potential risks such as potential addiction, getting locked out of your device and faulty older models.
