I'd like to give my old Jolla1 to a 5 year old child - but before that I'd like to make sure she won't be able to call anyone outside contact list - or other modifiable list. Does anyone know of a way to achieve this? Wishlist:

  1. Icons to phone/dial me/wife/etc directly
  2. Ability to restrict UI functions (settings etc)
  3. Ability to restrict access to app-shops
  4. (all other ideas, please add to comments)

you would have to think about messaging to - sms and mms or other "free" messangers that she might use(do 5 year old use whatsapp?) - well their writing skills grow.

1.) To place Contacts on the launcher, use this app from Schturman; https://openrepos.net/content/schturman/fastdial-icon-2

2.) Rather than attempt to restrict Settings, just hide the icon from the launcher,by adding "NoDisplay=true" in /usr/share/applications/jolla-settings.desktop file.

3.) Same for Jolla Store, simply hide it with "NoDisplay=true" within its desktop file, like above.
