  • SYS 122: Protecting Your Kids on Android and iOS Devices: Tips and Tricks

Here’s one for the Mums and Dads on how to keep your kids safe from the more base content of the internet while they are glued to their electronic devices.

Steve has some clever tips to ease your worries, whether they use Android or iOS devices like iPad or iPhones.


💡 On iPad, switch on Guided Access, available in Settings under Accessibility. This option will lock your child's access to the single app you allowed them to use and nothing else.

💡 YouTube Kids is an app and website developed by YouTube that is more appropriate for your child to explore. With this option, you can set the age restriction of the YouTube app without affecting the regular videos you want to search on YouTube as an adult.

💡 Apple Screentime, available in Settings, allows password protection for all purchases, even in-app. You can set individual time limits for any app from this setting also.

💡 An app called Family Link on Android devices allows you to create a new Gmail account for your child and then link your parent account to control their access to YouTube, Google Search, and other apps.

02:21 💬 ‘The point is, either by accident or on purpose, I don't want my kid to get exposed to disgusting apps and horrific stuff that you can simply and easily get on any device if it's not locked down.’

11:10 💬 ‘App Limits in Screen Time allows you to limit your child's usage per app on their device, which means that if they get addicted to an app, you can control how much they can only access it within a certain time within a day or week.’

16:37 💬 ‘Lock down your kids' iPad using Guided Access, YouTube Kids, and Screen Time, and lock down any Android devices using the Family Link app from the Google Play Store. Doing this, you can safely let your kids use their devices appropriately and for the right amount of time.’
