Iv googled this no end and can't work it out - any advice be most appreciated.
My daughter has a I pad - obviously the best security is parental monitoring . But can you put parental blocks on the Internet on them ? I'm not sure why I'm finding it so hard . Lap tops you put security on I pads come with security as basic - but can I put parental controls on - if so please someone tell me how as its beyond me ! envy

You don't need to download a special app, you choose which existing apps to restrict.

In addition to restricting on the settings.
Also look at household wifi controls. Some are better than others.
For YouTube download YouTube for kids app.

Also set up guided access - general - accessibility - guided access. Switch it
On and give it a pin.

When she goes onto the iPad you put her
On the YouTube app. When the app has launched you triple click the home button and this starts guided access.

Basically guided access locks the user into that app until the pin has been entered.

If still unsure. Pop along to your local Apple Store.
They even run hour long dedicated training sessions..

Also for any future enquiries of the like, you can contact the free helpline run by O2 and NSPCC jointly to give advice to parents about any issues to do with internet safety and kids on 0808 800 5002. :-)
