Setting up a child proof Ipad/Iphone in just 8 simple steps!


Have you tried exploring a topic with a child on an Ipad and their little fingers constantly touch the screen, exit apps or delete your photos?

Here are 8 simple steps to help take the stress out of using this technology in your classroom or at home…

It's called Guided Access. Here's how it works:

  1. Head to the Settings of your iPhone or Ipad. Tap on General. And then tap on the Accessibility section.

  2. Scroll down to find Guided Access under the Learning section and tap on it. Turn on Guided Access.

  3. Tap Passcode Settings and set a passcode. Or, alternatively, set up Touch ID.

  4. Now, press the Home button to exit Settings.

  5. Enter whatever app you want to use and triple-click the Home button.

  6. In the top right hand corner, click on Start to enable Guided Access

  7. If you want to exit the app, triple click the Home button and enter your passcode.

  8. In the top left hand corner, click on End to finish using Guided Access. Press the Home button to exit the app as usual.
