Unfortunately, attempting to keep this information away from the eyes of children is becoming increasingly more difficult. Samsung is looking to combat this by releasing a new application called “Family Care”.

It’s not yet known when Samsung will be releasing this new application. However, it seems there are some indications that it Samsung is pushing to release the new app alongside the Galaxy S8, which is slated for release in February.
