First, go to your home screen and find the Setting app, then give it a click. It can often be found in the utilities folder.
Then, select "screen time."
Now, choose "content & privacy restrictions."
Click "content restrictions," so that you can specify the restrictions you are wanting to create. If you don't already have content and privacy restrictions enabled, you will have to first click the toggle to the right of "content & privacy restrictions."
You will be prompted for your screen time passcode here. Enter your passcode in to move to the next step.
Click "web content." By default, this will be set to "unrestricted access." Don't worry. We are about to change this.
There are three separate options as to how you can restrict web content. Let's dive into them briefly before choosing the one best for the purposes of this guide.
Web content restrictions options:
- Unrestricted access- This one is pretty self-explanatory. Everything is accessible.
- Limit adult websites- Don't let the wording of "adult websites" scare you. This just means you can choose to limit or restrict certain, specific sites. You can also make sure some are always allowed in this same category.
- Allowed websites only- Here you have to specify the sites that are allowed to be visited on this device. This means, if you haven't added it to the list, you cannot visit it. So, it can be pretty restrictive in terms of being able to browse the web. All websites will be blocked that are not manually allowed by you.
In order to block a specific website, chose "limit adult websites."
Click "add website" so that we can enter in the website we no longer want to be able to access.
Now, type in your website and you are good to go! That's it.
You can add as many websites as you want, but try to only add websites you truly want to block for an extended timeframe.
Sometimes, when you are busy or out and about and your iPhone starts ringing, you don't want to pick it up, but you know it might be so-and-so with that important call you've been waiting on.
