To turn off parental permissions on the app store for your child’s device, you can follow these steps:

1. Begin by opening the Family Link app on your Android device. This app allows you to manage and monitor your child’s device usage.

2. Once you have opened the Family Link app, select your child’s profile. This will take you to a screen that displays various details about their device.

3. On the “Device” card, you will find a list of options and settings related to your child’s device. Tap on the “Settings” option to proceed.

4. Within the settings menu, you will see an option called “App permissions.” Tap on this option to view and manage the permissions for the apps installed on your child’s device.

5. In the “App permissions” section, you will find a list of different permissions such as location, camera, microphone, contacts, etc. Tap on the permission you wish to turn off for your child.

6. Once you have selected a specific permission, you will be taken to a new screen that displays a toggle switch. Below your child’s device, you will find this toggle switch. Simply switch it off to disable the chosen permission for your child.

7. Repeat the above steps for any other permissions you wish to turn off for your child’s device.

By following these steps, you can easily turn off parental permissions on the app store for your child’s device. It is important to note that doing so may limit certain features or functionalities of the apps, depending on the permissions disabled.
