Are you looking for a way to disable the Incognito mode on your iPhone? You’ve come to the right place!

In this tutorial, we will walk you through the step-by-step process of disabling Incognito mode on your iPhone. So, let’s get started!

Why Disable Incognito Mode?

If you’re wondering why someone would want to disable Incognito mode on their iPhone, there are a few reasons. One common reason is parental control.

Parents may want to restrict their child’s access to private browsing to ensure their online safety. Another reason could be monitoring employees’ internet usage on company-owned devices.

Step 1: Open Settings

To begin, unlock your iPhone and locate the Settings app icon on your home screen. It looks like a gear. Tap on it to open the Settings menu.

Step 2: Navigate to Screen Time

Once you’re in the Settings menu, scroll down and look for Screen Time. It should be in between ‘Do Not Disturb’ and ‘Wallet & Apple Pay’. Tap on it to proceed.


If you have enabled Screen Time already, skip this step and proceed directly to Step 3.

Step 3: Enable Screen Time

If Screen Time is not already enabled, tap Turn On Screen Time. Set up a passcode when prompted. This passcode will be required whenever someone attempts to change or disable any settings related to Screen Time.

Step 4: Tap Content & Privacy Restrictions

In the Screen Time menu, locate and tap on Content & Privacy Restrictions. It should be below ‘Always Allowed’ and above ‘Privacy’.

Step 5: Enable Content & Privacy Restrictions

Toggle the switch next to Content & Privacy Restrictions to enable it. You will be prompted to enter your Screen Time passcode.

Step 6: Navigate to Web Content

In the Content & Privacy Restrictions menu, scroll down and tap on Web Content. It should be below ‘iTunes & App Store Purchases’ and above ‘Allowed Apps’.

Step 7: Choose Limit Adult Websites

In the Web Content menu, you will see different options. Tap on Limit Adult Websites. This will restrict access to adult content on Safari, including Incognito mode.


If you want stricter control over browsing, you can choose Specific Websites Only. This option allows you to manually add websites that are allowed or blocked.

You’re Done!

Congratulations! You have successfully disabled Incognito mode on your iPhone. Now, whenever someone tries to access Incognito mode in Safari, they will be prompted with a message indicating that it is restricted.


  • If you forget your Screen Time passcode, you can reset it by going to Settings > Screen Time > Change Screen Time Passcode.
  • If you want to re-enable Incognito mode in the future, simply follow these steps again and toggle off the Content & Privacy Restrictions in Step 5.
  • If you encounter any issues or have any questions, consult Apple’s official support documentation or contact Apple Support for assistance.

We hope this tutorial has been helpful to you. Now you can enjoy a safer browsing experience on your iPhone. Happy browsing!
