Set restrictions on iOS

Set restrictions on your child's iOS device to get the best protection from Norton Family. This prevents your children from using a browser or an application that Norton Family does not monitor, or from uninstalling Norton Family. We recommend that you set up restrictions immediately before your children start using the device. You must also restrict your child from using all browsers other than Norton Family.

Set up restrictions on iOS

  1. Do one of the following:

    • On iOS 11 and below, tap Settings app > General.

    • On iOS 12 and above, tap Settings app > Screen Time > Content & Privacy Restrictions.

  2. Do one of the following:

    • On iOS 11 and below, tap Restrictions and turn it on. You need to create or enter a 4-digit restrictions passcode.

    • On iOS 12 and above, turn on Content & Privacy Restrictions.

  3. Do one of the following:

    • On iOS 11 and below, do the following:

      • Under Allow section, turn off Safari.

      • Under the Allow section, turn off Deleting Apps.

        This prevents your child from removing apps, including Norton Family.

      • Under Allowed Content section, tap Apps and then tap the age range for your child; for example, 12+ or younger.

        This prevents your child from downloading apps that may be inappropriate for the age.

    • On iOS 12 and above, do the following:

      • Tap Allowed Apps and then turn off Safari.

      • Tap iTunes & App Store Purchases, tap Deleting Apps, and then choose Don't Allow.

      • Tap Content Restrictions, tap Apps and then tap the age range for your child; for example, 12+ or younger.

        This prevents your child from downloading apps that may be inappropriate for the age.

    Norton Family does not monitor browsers other than the Norton Family browser. Safari is automatically disabled after you install a profile. If it is enabled, check if you have installed a profile on the device.
