Setting Parental Restrictions

If you plan to let your kids or grandkids play with your iPad, you might want to set some restrictions on what they can do.

  1. Open the Settings app and tap General.

  2. Tap Restrictions.

  3. Tap Enable Restrictions to turn restrictions on.

  4. Type in a four-digit code, and then re-enter the code when prompted. It is important to remember this code, or you can’t turn off or change restrictions later!

  5. The Restrictions settings are a long list of apps and functions that you can allow or disallow. The switches you use depend on how much you want to restrict your iPad’s use.

  6. Continue to scroll down the list and review all the possible settings. Some settings, like the ones for movies, TV shows, books, and apps, allow you to set a maximum content rating. For instance, for apps you can set this to 4+, 9+, 12+, 17+, Allow All Apps, or Don’t Allow Apps.
