Children are notorious for grabbing phones away from adults. Once your child gets on your phone, there is no telling what he or she will access — from music to apps, your phone is full of inappropriate content. To make matters worse, those quick little fingers don’t mind downloading content as well. If your child downloads the wrong thing, you might even end up at an iOS or Android repair shop in Twin Falls. Avoid these problems by childproofing your iOS or Android device. The process is simple, and you won’t worry next time your child is playing on your device.
Childproofing an iOS Device
If you want to childproof an iOS device, you will need to configure Guided Access for each app that you want to childproof. Once configured, you can disable the volume buttons, Home key, touchscreen, and more for that app. That way, you will have complete control over how your child interacts with the phone.
Follow these easy steps:
- Go to “Settings” menu and select “General.”
- Click on “Accessibly.”
- Go down to “Learning” and select “Guided Access.”
- Click “On” to turn Guided Access on, then, go to the app you want to childproof and triple-tap the home key. Configure your settings to your liking and test them to make sure everything works. Move on to the next app, and continue down the list.
Childproofing an Android Device
Android makes it seamless to childproof your device. Just set up a restricted profile for your child and then switch between profiles when needed. You just need to add a new user to your device.
- Go to “Settings,” select “Users,”
- Click “Add User or Profile.”
- Select “Restricted Profile,” click “New Profile,” and add your child’s name.
- Choose the settings, and then turn the profile on when you’re ready for your child to use it.
