1. Account Setup

(4) Set your 6-digit KidCall Parental Passcode. Your KidCall Parental Passcode is used to secure Settings and the Account Owner Profile area in the App, to approve your children's outgoing Friend Invites and incoming Friend Requests from other KidCall accounts, and to invite and/or approve Relatives to connect to your account so they can communicate with your children. When you sign out of the KidCall App, you will be asked to set the KidCall Parental Passcode again.

(5) Create a KidCall Profile and Avatar for your child. You can create KidCall Profiles for all your children during account setup or press Skip (you can add them later by going to our "Settings" menu).

PLEASE NOTE THAT KIDCALL IS FOR CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 13. PLEASE DO NOT SIGN UP IF YOUR CHILD IS OLDER THAN 13 YEARS OF AGE.
