Making Separate or Restricted Profiles on a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 NOOK

By Corey Sandler

Creating different user profiles on your Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 NOOK lets you customize what movies and eBooks you see in your apps. You can assign libraries to specific users; making separate profiles weeds out your kid’s movies from your queue.

Make sure each user profile has a proper passcode or pattern.

Here’s how to create a new profile or user:

  1. Swipe down from the top of the screen to display the notification panel.

  2. Tap the Settings (gear) icon.

  3. Tap the General tab at the top of the screen.

  4. From the left panel, scroll up to and tap Users.

  5. Tap the Add User (silhouette with +) icon.

  6. Choose to create a user.

    A restricted profile works well for children, if you want to prevent them from using certain apps. Tap to place a check mark beside the functions you want the child to be able to use. A restricted profile can’t use Gmail, Dropbox, Google+, Hangouts, the Photos app, Samsung In-App Purchase, and the NOOK Shop. However, you can enable Outlook.com.
