Block YouTube and/or App Purchases on iPhone or iPod Touch
Kids love using the iPhone and iPod Touch. However, parents may want to limit what their children can access through these devices. This simple tutorial shows how to use parental restrictions to block the viewing of YouTube videos or the purchasing of applications.
A friend of mine has a son approaching his teenage years and asked me how to limit access to YouTube on his iPhone. Another friend of mine was worried about giving their kids an iPod Touch for similar reasons. However, there is no reason to be concerned. These devices have excellent parental restrictions that allow the owner to limit what content and features can be accessed. Here is how to do it.
1. Click the Settings
2. Click General
3. Click Restrictions
4. Click Enable Restrictions button.
5. Enter and confirm a 4-digit PIN
6. Select the restrictions you wish.
if you want to limit access to YouTube, slide that selection to OFF. Settings for content, including apps and music, is found at the bottom of that screen.
