Safari is the default browser for iPhone users and is a great way to get online quickly. But, if you’re a parent or caretaker of an iPhone user, you may want to limit their access to certain websites by setting Safari restrictions. Here’s how:

First, open the Settings app on your iPhone and tap Screen Time. Next, tap Content & Privacy Restrictions and toggle the slider to “on.” Then select Allowed Apps and make sure Safari is enabled.

Next, go back to Content & Privacy Restrictions and select Content Restrictions, then Web Content. From here you can set permissions for specific websites or categories of websites such as adult content, gambling sites, social networks, or even certain age groups like 17+. You can also set how long a user can stay on a page before they are asked to leave the website.

Once you have these settings in place, you can be sure that your iPhone user is only accessing websites that are safe and appropriate for them. It’s also important to talk about digital safety with your child so that they understand why these restrictions are in place—and why knowledge of technology is important.

Overall, Safari on iPhone makes it easy for parents and caregivers to limit access to potentially harmful content online by setting up appropriate web content restrictions. By taking the time to set up these permissions today, you can help ensure that your children are safer online tomorrow.
