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.
