Android Market Now Allows for Content Filtering

When we covered all of the new features that the Android team implemented into the Market earlier in the week to make finding apps easier, we forgot to mention the fact that users can now set up content filters.  If you need to set up filters so that your kids or husband aren’t late night wallpaper shopping, then the Android Market will now allow you to do that.  You can even set a PIN, so that those filters cannot be removed.

To access content filtering, head into your market and press Menu>Settings.

Cheers 0mie!

  • Yeah, we’re still just getting started in so many ways. You could say
    blogging is “growing up.”

    Here the content filtering app works for default android browser and Dolphin browser. 


  • A good marketing tool as well.

  • If you’d ask me I will definitely put a PIN to prevent other members of my family to change the filter settings that I prefer.

  • My husband and i have been really fortunate when Albert could do his researching because of the precious recommendations he gained from your own web site. It’s not at all simplistic just to continually be giving for free guidance which usually many people might have been trying to sell. So we see we’ve got the blog owner to be grateful to because of that. The illustrations you’ve made, the straightforward web site navigation, the relationships you will aid to foster – it is everything unbelievable, and it is making our son and us do think the theme is amusing, which is certainly extremely serious. Many thanks for all the pieces!

  • I would like to express appreciation to you just for bailing me out of such a trouble. Just after looking out through the world-wide-web and meeting thoughts that were not helpful, I figured my life was well over. Being alive without the solutions to the problems you’ve fixed by means of your good posting is a critical case, as well as those that might have negatively damaged my career if I hadn’t encountered your website. Your own personal ability and kindness in controlling the whole lot was tremendous. I don’t know what I would have done if I hadn’t discovered such a stuff like this. It’s possible to now look forward to my future. Thanks for your time so much for the specialized and sensible guide. I will not hesitate to propose your web site to anyone who needs and wants care on this subject.

    I have seen this, but really can’t find what each rating actually means. I’m guessing “everyone” is like rated G and show all apps is obvious. But what do all the inbetween ratings mean?

     Also I just noticed on my nexus I have apps, games and my apps up top before it was apps, games, and sprint, works for me

       Thats probably why they said “When we covered all of the new features that the Android team implemented into the Market earlier in the week we forgot to mention…” but good observationwe forgot to mention…” but good observation

      • i didnt bother to read the article cause it was something old, just scanned it to make sure it’s the same thing I thought it was.

        • None

          Nadeem is an idiot for not reading the post 

          • How does that make me an idiot?
            Oh look there is a new book that just came out, I scan through it to see what it is, and comment on it, that makes me stupid?
            Same thing applies to this retard.

     Now if Google would just natively add a mechanism to control access to the Market so my 4-yr old doesn’t go on a shopping spree in the back of the car, life would be good 😉

    • There is an app that allows you to lock certain applications including the market with a password

      • Mdeamicis

         do you happen to know the name of that app? cuz when i saw the pin to change settings my first though was damn, they lock down settings but not the market, and in app purchases should be secured as well for the same reason.

     If they can give me a way to filter the web like k-9 does on the computer, then I can finally get my son and Android phone.  Come on…someone make the app.
