If you would like to see only content for kids when you are browsing Hoopla, or you want your kids to see only content for kids, you can make that selection in the Hoopla app under “Settings”. NOTE: This setting stays with the device, not the account. So if a parent enables “Kid’s Mode” on a child’s iPad, it’s set only for that iPad. If the child uses another device (like a PC), the parent will have to enable Kid’s Mode on that device, too.
