Kids are spending more time these days watching content on electronic devices. While devices like tablets and smartphones are adding a lot to their experience of growing up, there is an increasingly problematic behavior of kids sitting too close to the devices.

The behavior could cause serious damage to their eyes/vision. Some of the problems that kids could face are: computer vision syndrome, strain to the brain, and attacks to the cornea.

The Samsung Safety Screen app helps children hold the device at an ideal safe distance from their eyes.

This Samsung Safety Screen app operates in the background so you can open other applications at the same time. It uses facial recognition technology by using the front camera on the device to calculate the optimal distance. When the child’s eyes are too close to the screen, the app will block a big part of the screen and advises the child to move back using a friendly animation.
