  • Ultron’s many references to God and creation.
  • Putting family first.
  • Preemptive action against an enemy.

How to Prevent iOS Apps from Accessing the Internet [Video]

A number of apps that your kids are using have web browsers hidden in them. They can use those browsers to get access to the entire Internet. Here’s how to prevent that from happening.

Along with parental controls it’s a good idea to use a third-party browser like Covenant Eyes or X3Watch.

Sign up for Covenant Eyes and and use the promo code “wiredhs” when registering. You’ll get a 30-day free trial and help support The Wired Homeschool.
