Xiaomi launched their new budget range smartphone on 20th March named Xiaomi Redmi 4A. As the name says, it’s not an update to the Redmi 3S but to the Redmi 2 of theirs. It comes with a 5-inch 720p display along with 16GB internal storage and 2GB of RAM.

We always want our children to have limited access to our phone. Thanks to the MIUI, they have a child mode feature which lets your kid have access for limited apps on your phone. Today, I’ll be guiding you how to set it up on your Redmi 4A.

Here’s how to set up the Child mode

For turning on the Child mode, you will need to have a screen lock on your device first. To turn on that, go to the Settings > Lock screen > password > Screen lock > Choose screen lock > and choose the lock type you prefer. Now, you’re set with the lock screen.
