Hi @Otis ,

We can only block the installed application and SafeFamily do not have an option to block download/ Installation on a device.

You can block android 'Settings' app which will restrict kids from downloading and installing APK files.

OK, but I didn´t found 'Settings' in the list of Android apps in Safe family, I´m not able to block it.
