The new Samsung Galaxy Tab E (8-inch) Android Tablet is now available from Verizon and is designed for families on-the-go. This low-end, $250 tablet features Multi-User Mode that enables separate logins, allowing each user to save settings and keep information private.
When you lend your tablet to a friend or family member, it often comes back with different background screens, altered settings and new or missing apps. With the Galaxy Tab E unique user accounts option, that’s no longer an issue. Everyone who plays or works on the tablet can create an individual account with their favorite applications, tools, settings and content.
For parents, that also means you can restrict the applications your kids can access or download. With the Samsung Galaxy Tab E everyone can watch their shows on go90 and the kids can enjoy thousands of parent-approved games available on the Google Play store. If you use the Samsung Kid’s Mode available in Galaxy Essential widget, you’ll have total control over your child’s tablet experience, including age-appropriate content and games.
