Microsoft depreciates Kid’s Corner feature in Anniversary update

Microsoft has now removed the Kid’s Corner feature in latest Windows 10 Mobile Redstone Build 14367. This means the feature will not make its way to the Anniversary update release. While Kid’s corner as a feature had been popular when it was first introduced with Windows Phone 8.1, Microsoft never was able to sort out the feature and users kept on raising concerns about usability, security. So now Microsoft has removed it citing low usage and has recommended to use App’s Corner a similar but not aesthetically same feature.

After taking a look at the overall usage of the Kids Corner feature in Windows 10 Mobile and Windows Phone 8.1, we have decided to remove this feature from Windows 10 Mobile beginning with the Windows 10 Anniversary Update. The usage of Kids Corner was too low to justify continued development and support of the feature. While not a replacement with the same functionality, you can try out Apps Corner under Settings > Accounts > Apps Corner which has some of the functionality as Kids Corner such as the ability to give people access to selected apps on your phone as well as a customized Start screen when they use your phone.
