    From time to time, I connect my s2 tab to random wifi sources and download or update apps. The other day, it alerted me that there was a new version of kidsmode. It gave me two options, update now or cancel. To push cancel just brings you right back to that same prompt. I can't get it to update however, because I'm IN kidsmode, and to sign into wifi, I need to go to the Internet browser and accept the terms of service, which you can't do in kidsmode. Pushing the home button just returns me to kidsmode, which prompts me to update. Is there anyway I can update or get out of the update without needing to Uninstall kidsmode?

    Restart the tablet, don't go into Kids Mode, and then update Kids Mode from Galaxy Apps or Google Play.

    It automatically restarts in kidsmode.

    Try booting into safe mode and then uninstall the Kids Mode app:

    1. Turn off the tablet.
    2. Turn it on and hold volume down while it boots
    3. Open the App Drawer
    4. Find "Kids Mode" icon
    5. Drag the icon to "Uninstall"
    6. Restart the tablet
    7. Keep your fingers crossed
