iPhone 101: How To Set Up Parental Controls on Your iPhone
Welcome to iPhone 101, simple tips for novice iPhone users to help you take advantage of your new device.
Maybe your kid spends way too much time browsing the internet via Safari, uses the camera in ways that are not appropriate, or perhaps they went on a spending spree in the App Store and you didn't know until your credit card bill came in the mail. Whatever the case may be, find out how to regain some parental control by enabling restrictions after the break!
Ok, you will want to begin to go into the settings.
Once you are in the settings, go directly to the general tab.
Tap the restrictions tab and once on that screen choose enable restrictions.
You will now be asked to enter a 4 digit passcode. Do not forget this passcode, there is no way to retrieve it, and a full restore (re-installation) of the iPhone is needed to reset it.
After you have entered your passcode, you will now have the ability to restrict any of the functions you see on the screen. Without going through each and every option, lets just take a look at Safari. If you turn off Safari and head back to your home screen you will see that the icon is removed and there is no way possible to reach that application any more.
To re-enable a function like Safari, return to the restriction page, authorize with the 4 digit passcode you entered above, and turn it back on.
So there you have it folks, if there is any reason you need to restrict certain apps or features on your (or your child's) iPhone, this is how you do it.
