Parental Controls / Restricted Profile

When in the restricted profile mode on the shield the channels app keeps crashing. Usually 1-3 seconds into the app loading. I got as far as doing a search and every time I tried to schedule a pass the app would stop. Other times just moving the focus down the menu items the app would crash.

We need to use the restricted profile or my son will install 10,000 games.

I also had the app crashing in normal mode but not near the frequency. The shield has not been upgraded to Oreo.

What restrictions do you have set?

In the settings you can setup a restricted profile / parental controls which only loads the applications you select.

This allows us to make only a few applications available without needing a pin, Netflix, Plex, Channels…
