Technology is a crucial consideration when it comes to keeping your children safe.

CONTENT AND PRIVACY RESTRICTIONS

  • Go to the Settings menu and select Screen Time.
  • Choose “This is My [Device]” or “This is My Child’s [Device]” after tapping Continue.
  • If you’re the parent or guardian of the device, tap Use Screen Time Passcode to generate a passcode, then re-enter it to confirm. After you confirm your passcode with iOS 13.4 and later, you’ll be prompted to enter your Apple ID and password. If you forget your Screen Time passcode, you can use this to reset it.
  • Follow the prompts until you reach Parent Passcode and input a passcode if you’re setting up Screen Time on your child’s device. To confirm, enter the passcode again. Then, add your Apple ID and password. Your iPad now has restricted content via parental control
