How to Block Safari Using Screen Time Restrictions on iPad

Share This:

Are you trying to keep your children safe online, but wondering how to block Safari on the iPad? Screentime is a great way to do just that. With Screentime, you can easily set up parental controls and limit the websites your child has access to. Here’s how you can use Screentime to block websites on Safari on an iPad.

The first step is to open the Settings app and select Screen Time. From there, you will be prompted to create a Screen Time passcode. This passcode will prevent anyone else from making changes to the settings or accessing any apps or websites that have been blocked.

Once you’ve created a passcode, you can start setting up parental controls for each of your kids’ iPads. In the Screen Time section, tap on the device name for your child’s iPad and then select Content & Privacy Restrictions. Toggle the Content & Privacy Restrictions slider to On/Green so that it is enabled.

The next step is to tap Allowed Apps and scroll down until you see Safari. Tap on it and then select “Never Allow” so that it cannot be used by your child without entering the Screen Time passcode first.

Finally, if there are specific websites that should be blocked, you can add them under Prevent Web Content by tapping Web Content in the Content & Privacy Restrictions section of Screen Time settings. You can also choose whether or not adult websites should be blocked and which age-appropriate ratings should be allowed (e.g., PG-13).

With these simple steps, you can ensure that your children are safe online with Screentime blocking Safari on their iPads!
