If you have an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch and want to prevent kids or anyone from accessing certain apps – lock them down. Enable restrictions to block users from using apps and accessing inappropriate media content.
On your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch go to Settings >> General >> Restrictions.
Tap Enable Restrictions. You’ll need to enter in a four digit Passcode twice.
Now go through and set the restrictions. Move the slider to the Off position to disable access.
You can turn on restrictions to disable music and in-app purchases from iTunes. Very handy if you let your kids use your device.
It also lets you turn off links in Safari and only allow TV and music content by ratings.
Configure Allowed Content Settings. Select the top age rating for apps and games on your device.
Now when you or anyone else tries to access an app or content that’s restricted. The passcode you set will be required.
You’ll also notice that apps you’ve restricted will no longer display as icons on the Home Screen or Dock.
If you don’t want anyone to get into your iDevice is the first place, make sure to enable a strong passcode.
