Keep Your Kids From Deleting Apps From Your iPhone
I’ve been out recently where some friends told me their kid is now playing with there iPhones/iPads. They said that the kid sometimes also deletes apps. A MindNode customer also just wrote in to MindNode support with this problem.
I thought technical-savvy parents know this, but apparently not.
To make uninstalling of apps a little bit harder for your kids:
- Go into the Settings app
- Under: General → Restrictions
- Enable restrictions
- Disable (disallow) “Deleting Apps”
Your kid can use your phone now more “safely”. To enable deletion, disable restrictions. There are other things that you can disallow too, like visiting certain websites, and so forth.
