iOS tip: How to limit your iPhone when you pass it to a friend
It’s happened to all of us: we pass our phone to show content, and the person can’t help but dig a little deeper into your business. So to deal with people who are too curious, iOS offers a practical solution, which should also appeal to parents.
And it’s once again in the accessibility settings that this happens (Settings > Accessibility). The option is called Guided Accessand can be found in the “General” subsection. Once enabled, the feature will limit iPhone access to an app.
Launch the application of your choice, then click the side button three times (the one that allows you to turn the device on and off) to block the application. To get out, the maneuver will be the same: three quick clicks on the side button.
As we pointed out to you above, guided access is also very practical for parents, who lend their phone (or their iPad) to a young child. In order to prevent him from leaving his game or his video, parents can activate the option and ensure that the child will not disturb the iPhone.
