How to Restrict Access to Specific Websites in Safari on iPhone or iPad

Your little kid often pounces on your iPhone and starts browsing the web. And as a parent, you want your little champ to stay away from the explicit content. Therefore, you’ve finally decided to completely block websites in Safari on the iPhone so that obscene content remains at bay.

That’s a pretty good decision! iOS comes with a robust parental control feature called “Screen Time” that can let you not just restrict the unwanted sites but also keep track of the device usage and even set a time limit for apps. Long story short, it’s designed to let you have the needed control of your child’s device.
