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 certain websites 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.
Enough of chit chatting. In this hands-on guide, we gonna show you how you can limit the access to specific sites in iOS 12 or later. So, follow along!
How to Restrict Access to Specific Websites in Safari on iOS Device
Step #1. Open Settings app on your iOS device.
Step #2. Now, tap on Screen Time.
Step #3. Next, tap on Content & Privacy Restrictions → Enter your Screen Time Passcode.
Step #4. Now, Turn on the switch for Content & Privacy Restrictions.
Step #7. Under Never Allow section, tap on Add Website and enter the name of the site, which you want to completely block on your iOS device. Then, hit Done to finish.
Now, quit the Settings and you are ready to go! From now onwards, your little kid will no longer be able to access this website on the device.
What if you happen to change your mind later for any personal reason and allow access to the blocked sites? Don’t worry; you can get it done with ease.
