As the technology progresses, the number of children suffering from addiction has increased. Apple has provided a new option for Families on its webpage to help children avoid screen addiction.
Through Ask to Buy tool, parents can block their kids’ use of apps and prevent them from buying new apps. Additionally an app management feature is provided so that users can automatically block in-app purchases. By blocking the purchase of apps by another feature, it may prevent pornography from being viewed. Moreover, the pre-approved Web site provides the option of their children to use. The Find My Friends feature on the same page is to get information about where their children went, how far they traveled, and how long they traveled.
“We’re continually designing new features to help make sure kids use them in the ways you want,” Apple states.
Health, privacy, and family sharing options are few of the extra highlights of the page. Apple has not done anything new by adding such a page but the page sure does keep all of Apple’s safety and privacy features into one place.
Apple has announced that iPhone manufacturers have been advised to take further steps to keep children away from screen addiction.
