Some insiders have sent me emails and said that they had accidentally removed the kids mode installer icon from their home screens which made them couldn't install the kids mode app. FYI, since the kids mode installer is one of default widgets on the Samsung Galaxy S5 then you can easily get the kids mode installer icon back to your home screen simply by finding the kids mode widget from the widgets list and then add it to your home screen. Once done, you can use the kids mode installer icon that you have added to the home screen to install and configure the kids mode app.
