Check where people call you
You can do it so people can only call the portal while at home with home and home function. Turn left on the home screen and press Settings> Incoming Call Settings> Only When You're Home . Then go to your phone and confirm that you want to use the Home and Remove feature when the alert pops up.
This will automatically automatically call your phone when you are not at home.
If you like to have video calls with the little kids in your life, your Story Time feature is your new favorite thing. It allows you to basically tell a story using history filters and screen tips. Story choices include The Three Little Pigs, Itsy-Bitsy Spider and Mary had some lamb.

Now that you can not see anything, just tap it three times. The area on the screen will enlarge. To return the screen to normal size, press it three times again.
Add other accounts
No doubt your other family members or friends want to use your portal. No problem. You can add up to four accounts.

When you're done with the person, click the bottom right corner of the screen and select Spotlight Off .
