Letting your child play a game on your phone can offer some much-needed quiet time. However, you hand over a lot more than a single game when you give your child your iPhone. That’s where Restrictions come in handy, allowing you to block access to entire apps or types of content. To turn on this feature, go to Settings > General > Restrictions.

Guard your screen 

This is a major mistake everyone make out of care. We do it smoothly and think that we have all got in hand. Its always Siri that makes a helping move to do everything about your iPhone access. But Siri may make more problems if we are not capable of handling it.

Siri can help you in so many ways, yet if you’re not careful, your digital assistant can help others to snoop on you. It can be pretty alarming to learn the variety of personal information anyone can access from your lock screen via Siri, including your home address and calendar appointments. If you’d rather not allow strangers to ask Siri for directions to your house among other things, just go to Settings, Touch ID & Passcode, and after entering your passcode, scroll down to Allow Access When Locked, and toggle off Siri.

Restrict Kids’ Access to Your iDevices

So child lock is not a small deal. You gotta do that if you don’t want to end up in court, maybe thats for a 911 call. These things should be checked clearly before you give your phone to kid to stop crying

Letting your child play a game on your phone can offer some much-needed quiet time. However, you hand over a lot more than a single game when you give your child your iPhone. That’s where Restrictions come in handy, allowing you to block access to entire apps or types of content. To turn on this feature, go to Settings > General > Restrictions. You’ll be prompted to set a special four-digit passcode just for Restrictions. Make sure this is different than your iPhone passcode to minimize the chance of your child memorizing it. Here you can block access to apps as well as movies and music with adult content. Make sure not to forget your Restrictions passcode! 

Cover Your Tracks Online

There are times when you want privacy when going online. Yet Safari tracks what you search, offering up suggestions based on past searches and showing a list of recently visited sites in Safari under the Bookmarks folder. To stop this, just go to Safari and tap the Bookmarks tab, tap History, and tap Clear. To start fresh and wipe out all past searches, choose Clear All History. To clear just specific sites, choose between last hour, today, and today and yesterday.
