S10 powers on with Kids Mode on and is freezing randomly

So every single time the phone turns off and back on, in my notification bar it says kids mode is turned on. So I have to go into my quick settings and hit kids mode, then close it. Not super bad, just annoying. The other problem, over the last couple days my phone has randomly froze. It'll be working just fine, then just freezes and I have to force restart it. I'm concerned, as a person who has worked with cell phones for the last few years, I have no idea why it would be doing this. Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Re: Couple of issues I'm having that I'm not sure how to fix.

Have you confirmed your device is currently up to date? Have you tried wiping the cache partition on the device?

 

The system cache partition stores temporary system data. It's supposed to allow the system to access apps more quickly and efficiently, but sometimes things get cluttered and outdated, so a periodic cache clearing can help make the system run more smoothly.


Follow these steps:

 

- Turn off the device.
- Press and hold the Volume Up key and the Bixby key, then press and hold the Power key.
- When the Android logo displays, release all three keys.
- An ‘Installing system update’ message will show for 30 – 60 seconds before the Android system recovery menu options appear.
- Press the Volume down key several times to highlight wipe cache partition.
- Press the Power key to select.
- Press the Volume down key to highlight yes, them and press the Power key to select.
- When the wipe cache partition is complete, Reboot system now is highlighted.
- Press the Power key to restart the device.

 

Your phone will take a little time booting up after the cache partition is wiped off of its contents as it will rebuild or recreate those caches. Don’t be alarmed if the phone gets stuck on the logo for a minute or two after this just don’t turn it off so that what was deleted will be replaced successfully. So, wait for your phone to become active. Don’t worry, this procedure is very easy and safe to do. You won’t damage your phone just by wiping the cache partition.
