I just talked to Samsung and they said "No way", so do any of you know if there is a,way to prevent a Galaxy S5 from booting in Safe Mode? I know it is part of the OS.
Problem: I have installed Net Nanny on the grandkids phones, but two of them figured out that if they boot in Safe Mode it bypasses 3rd party apps, Net Nanny included. Anyone know iof a work around on this problem? This has become a BIG problem for me and my adult children just trying to keep the kids off some of the garbage on the 'net.

Well you can try to put Open DNS on your router: https://www.opendns.com/ and make an account with them from there you can setup what type of sites you want to block. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vlWUNF6pnaw

But if they could always use the sim card to surf the web which would bypass Open DNS.

Hope this helps at least a little.
