If you want to avoid problems derived from the use of technology, Apple offers you some interesting keys.
We have had to live in an era of technological explosion, where any member of the home is trained to use the devices that are around them, even our own pets. However, even though you have to control access to technology for the little ones, there are tools so that they can begin to know a little more about the world around them, either using, for example, YouTube Kids on Apple TV or apps for Android and iOS with which to have fun and learn. In addition, Apple also invites us to know the better ways so that your children navigate safely with his iPhone and iPad.
If you want to protect the little ones while they use their Apple devices, these are the best recommendations
Application usage habits
You can check what types of applications your children use at all times, through an interesting section, which we will use throughout the following points, in settings. Within them, you will have to navigate to the option Use time and click on See all activity. There you will be able to see which applications your son or daughter spends the most time in, being able to direct their attention to those that interest you the most.
Since little ones often use the iPhone or iPad for entertainment, it is convenient to schedule a time when they can use their favorite applications for fun and a time when they will not be able to use more than those apps that their parents have left them. To do this, you will have to enter settingsgo to Use time and select Inactivity timewhich will be the period where the use of the apps can be limited.
If you think that you have to go a step further and limit the circle of trusted people with whom the smallest of the house can talk, you simply have to go back to settingsselect Use time and choose the option communication limits.
Avoid installations and unwanted purchases
Not infrequently we have known cases in which minors have used their parents’ bank or credit card details to make online purchases, whether for products, services or applications. To avoid this last point, we can establish a new limit by going to settingsselecting the section Familyat the top, and entering your profile to choose request purchase.
Finally, even though we have put a good number of restrictions, it is difficult for children to be safe from explicit content on the Internet. That is why the best way to keep them safe is by going to settingswe return to Use time and we choose restrictions. We will have to access content restrictions and select the places where we do not want children to be exposed to content not suitable for their age.
Protection against sending and receiving files
Finally, if what we want is to prevent nude images from entering or leaving the iPhone or iPad of children, we simply have to activate a security function. To do this, you will have to go to the app settingson the adult’s device, choose Use timeselect the minorclick on Security and communication and select Verify sensitive photos.
