With the release of iOS 7 on September 18, 2013, Apple added the ability to configure parental controls for Safari. This provides a safer browsing experience for you and your kids when using the default browser that ships with every iPhone, iPad, and iPod.
To access restrictions tap Settings > General > Restrictions. You will be prompted to enter a 4-digit pass code. This should be different from the one you use to unlock the device, especially if you’re configuring restrictions for your children.
Once you’ve entered a pass code, you can choose to either disable Safari completely or limit the allowable content in the browser.
Choose between allowing:
- All Websites
- Limit Adult Content
- Specific Websites Only
If you choose either restriction, you can also customize the allowed and restricted sites by either manually adding them or adding them as you come across the sites in Safari (watch the video to see how this is done).
While you’re in there, you’ll probably want to poke around at the other restrictions available. There will be more videos in the future about addition content and applications restrictions.
