If you are anything like I am, you have children who love your iPhone and are continuously opening and closing applications and deleting items and my favorite was the in app purchases that kept happening. That was until I discovered GUIDED ACCESS!
I figure that there are other parents out there that are in desperate need of a way to lock their kids into an app and keep them away from the rest of your phone. So here is my step by step tutorial on how to turn on and use this feature!
|Go to your settings|
|Click on General|
|Click on Accessibility and scroll down to Guided Access|
|Toggle the “Guided Access” button to the on position and also toggle on the “Accessibility Shortcut”|
|Next, click on passcode settings and “set guided access passcode” You can also toggle on the “touch ID” if you use that feature.|
|This is your opening screen. You can choose to just start it our you can disable features before you start|
|To disable ads and other features you may want your kid to stay out of, draw a circle around those areas on the screen.|
|Once you have disabled the areas you do not want access to, then click on “START”|
|Enter your passcode or touch ID|
|Click on End or you can also readjust the areas that you disabled if you need to.|
