One of the nice features with Windows Phone 8 is the Kid's Corner. If you go into the settings and turn this feature on, you can select games, music, videos, and apps that are age appropriate for your children. While in the Kid's Corner, these selections are all your children have access to. It is designed to create a safe environment for your kids to access and protect the more sensitive stuff on your Windows Phones from curiosity.
But there seems to be a slight bug in accessing the Kid's Corner if you use a PIN Number to lock your Windows Phone. When a PIN Number is set, if you swipe right from the lock screen to access the Kid's Corner that PIN number is required to unlock the Kid's Corner.
Some have found a work around to this by setting an interval for when the PIN is required. You'll still have to enter the PIN to access your Windows Phone but the Kid's Corner will no longer require a PIN. Downside to this work around is that it doesn't always work.
The times we've seen Kid's Corner in action, the PIN screen was not in play. And we have to wonder why the Kid's Corner would need a PIN to begin with. Even if you wanted to PIN protect the Kid's Corner it makes no sense to give your child the same PIN that would unlock the main phone.
It's likely a bug that needs ironing out in the next update Microsoft pushes out. If you've had PIN problems with Kid's Corner, feel free to sound off in the comments.
Thanks, Jonathan, for the tip!
