How to Set Up Parental Controls to Protect Privacy | iPhone

Published 2nd June 2021

A free online safety guide on parental controls to protect privacy.

The privacy settings on your child’s smartphone give you control over how the information stored on it can be used. You can turn off location services, for example, to keep their whereabouts private or stop apps from accessing functions of the phone like the camera or microphone. We’ve produced step-by-step guides on how to tighten up privacy settings on iPhones and Android phones.

In the guide, you'll find tips such as how to make changes to the privacy settings and how to prevent changes to other settings and features.
