It’s one thing to settle down yourself and your partner, but what about the rest of the family? Children can also have access to personalized content that Visual ID offers: Here’s how and what you need to know.
Can I set up Amazon Visual ID for my child?
It is now possible to configure visual identification for children. However, the first step is to create an Amazon Kids profile for your child.
Amazon Kids helps you create a personalized experience for your child by providing age-appropriate, kid-friendly books, videos, apps, and games.
Amazon Kids also allows a parent to access their child’s activity in their Amazon Kids profile, as well as monitor and modify web browser access. What you can do with Amazon Kids varies from device to device, and you’ll need to set up Visual ID separately on each device you want to use it on, as Amazon does not store facial recognition data in the cloud. .
Create a free child profile on any compatible Echo device to get started, including a Fire tablet, Fire TV, Kindle e-reader, and most Alexa devices. It’s also supported on Android, iOS, or Chrome OS, though you need to download the Amazon Kids+ app for Android, iOS, and Chrome devices.

Visual ID provides personalized information and updates based on who Alexa sees on camera. Visual identification can provide daily calendar and appointment information, children’s news, or a special digital sticky note that reads, “Have a great day at school!”
When another person in your household who is also enrolled in visual identification approaches the device, they may also see information specific to them.
