Ipod Safety

DS age 9 has a New ipod and although we are checking history on Safari I want to make sure he doesn't accidently or curiously access adult content.

What other settings can you recommend?

I vaguely remember there being some limited parental controls under Settings---> Restrictions.

Also, disable in app purchases!

Oh we were trying to do this yesterday. It's really a bit shit. Yes you can restrict some things through the restrictions, but you can't restrict safari content. You need to disable safari and then install a kid safe browser. Apparently abailable free through app store. If you find a nice one please update as i have yet to do this! I'm not sure about youtube content though.

Have been on App store and found the likes of net Nanny £2.99 but worth it if the job gets done. Need to read the reviews of a few to compare.

Settings and restrictions updated and Safari disabled .

Hope I remember the password.

Thank you both for your suggestions.

It's not completely fool proof. But better with it than without.
