Microsoft removes Kids Corner from Windows 10 Mobile with new Insiders Preview Build
Kids Corner on Windows Phone was a great way to distract the kiddies. By allowing them to use your phone to play games, watch videos, listen to music and use apps that you have vetted in advance,  you were able to go on with your business. And the best part of the feature was that it prevented your offspring from accidentally dialing your boss and calling him 'a dooty-head.' It also prevented Junior from deleting the Henderson contract by accident (no matter where you work, there is always a Henderson contract), and installing a ton of paid apps.

But you might have to learn to actually interact with your children after installing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14367. This build removes Kids Corner from Windows 10 Mobile. This update is coming to insiders subscribed to the fast ring. These insiders get first crack at a new build, but at the risk of receiving buggy software that still needs to be worked on.

Among the long list of of changes coming to Windows 10 Mobile with this new build, is the removal of Kids Corner. Microsoft says that its usage was too low to justify wasting time and money to continue supporting and developing the feature. While not a replacement, Microsoft suggests using Apps Corner to mollify the kiddies. Go to Settings > Accounts > Apps Corner. This feature shares some functionality with Kids Corner. The phone's owner can limit the apps available for others to use, and customize a Start screen for users.
