How do you keep your child from making changes to the account settings or volume on iPhone or iPad? With parental controls!
Parental Controls, also known as Restrictions, let you manage which features, apps, and content your kids can and can't access on your iPhone or iPad. This includes preventing any changes being made to your email, contacts, and calendar accounts, and to volume limits. Whether you're worried your young child will accidentally delete your accounts or your pre-teen might try to add a new account, you can quickly and easily lock it all in Settings.
How to block the ability to make changes to accounts and volume limits on iPhone and iPad
- Launch the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad.
- Tap on General.
Tap on Restrictions.
- Tap on Enable Restrictions at the top if they aren't already. If they are, skip to step 7.
- Type a 4-digit password that only you will know. Your child should never know this password.
Type the password again to confirm it.
- Swipe up to scroll down to bottom of the screen.
- Tap on each of the following categories to change their settings:
- Volume Limit
Tap on Don't Allow Changes for each one.
When you want to make changes or supervise your child making changes, you can re-enable them in restrictions, then turn them back off again when done.
