Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you hand your iPhone to a child or someone else, only to realize later that they have accessed inappropriate adult content? If this has happened to you or if you simply want to take preventive measures, you can easily block adult content on your iPhone. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process step by step.

Using Restrictions

If you want to restrict access to adult content on your iPhone, the built-in Restrictions feature is the way to go. To get started, follow these simple steps:

Step 1: Open Settings

To begin, find and tap on the “Settings” app icon on your iPhone’s home screen. It usually looks like a gear.

Step 2: Navigate to Screen Time

In the Settings menu, scroll down and tap on “Screen Time”. This option allows you to manage various aspects of your device usage.

Step 3: Enable Content & Privacy Restrictions

In the Screen Time menu, tap on “Content & Privacy Restrictions”. If this is your first time using this feature, it might ask you to set up a passcode.

Step 4: Set Up a Passcode

To ensure that only authorized users can make changes to these restrictions, set up a passcode. Choose a memorable passcode that is different from your device passcode but easy for you to remember.

Step 5: Enable Web Content Filtering

In the Content & Privacy Restrictions menu, tap on “Content Restrictions”, then select “Web Content”. Here, you can choose how strict you want the web content filtering to be.

  • Limited Adult Websites: This option restricts access to many adult websites automatically.
  • Allowed Websites Only: With this option, you can manually specify the websites that are allowed to be accessed.
  • Specific Websites Only: This option restricts access to all websites except those you explicitly allow.

Step 6: Customize Other Content Restrictions

In addition to web content filtering, you can also customize restrictions for other types of content such as movies, music, and apps. Feel free to explore these options and choose what suits your needs best.


By following these simple steps and enabling Content & Privacy Restrictions on your iPhone, you can easily block adult content and ensure a safer browsing experience for yourself or others using your device. Remember to periodically review and update these settings as needed. Stay in control of what you and others can access on your iPhone!

We hope this tutorial has helped you understand how to block adult content on your iPhone using the built-in Restrictions feature. Happy browsing!
