You can logout from iMessage and the Mail app (or don't even log in with your accounts to start with). To turn messages and email off you can do the following: iMessage: Settings > Messages > iMessage OFF. Mail: Settings > Mail, contacts, calendars > the email account > off or delete account. You can still use your Apple ID on that iPad for the store ...

You could change permissions for Safari. Open the information window on Safari (from the Finder window, with the Safari application selected, push command+I or right-click), add the desired user, and set permissions to no access.

After much time, I now understand more about the changing of a birthdate on a child Apple ID account. In my region (US and UK) there are bands which define child, teen, and adult. They are.... 1-12 Child 13-17 Teen 18+ Adult Basically, you can't change a birthday from one band to another. Once a child, always a child, until the system thinks the birthday ...

The Guided Access method is the one that is usually suitable for home usage. It is, as you describe, easy to break out of if you want. If you want to protect against reboot breaking out of Guided Access, then "Single App Mode" is the way to go. In contrary to what you write, it is not necessary to have an MDM system for that to work. All you need to do is ...

You can do this either way, you can use your account or your child's, but the steps to take to set up Screen Time will vary depending on which one you use. It sounds like the iPad is for your child to use primarily, in which case I would recommend using his/her account, since it makes it more streamlined and intuitive to use the parental management features....

I would implement parental controls on their device. You set a passcode and then you can control which apps are hidden. https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201304 Start with hiding that one app and then see if you want to impose other restrictions. You might ensure iCloud backups are set and lock their iCloud to your family plan as well for extra security ...

Just open the terminal and type: cd /Applications sudo rm -R -f Safari.app It will ask for your password and proceed to delete Safari from the system. You may want to backup the app before.

The scenario you describe is what Family Sharing is designed to avoid. Each person should have their own iCloud account, then each person's data is exclusive to them, but apps/books/music/calendars can, at the parents' discretion, be allowed to be used on the children's devices. That's just the apps, not the data on those apps.

I checked on iOS 12.4, YouTube kids app, there's no feature for autoplay settings. It is "on", on web and on app. Alternatively, I am not very experienced in user scripts, but can suggest a potential, easy algorithm. When the current video time = (total video time - 1) seconds, pause video. I have no idea how to write it, but you can get help from sites ...

http://appleid.apple.com/ is the correct place. It's been awhile since I did this, but as I recall you will need to delete it as the secondary email then you can edit the primary. Also, it's easiest if you turn off FindMyiPhone on the device before starting this process. After all changes have been made and you are logged back into iCloud on the device ...

Yes, start with Guided Access which easily locks one app in full screen mode and then move on to restrictions once you have a feeling for what you want to open up past one app at a time as your two year old gets more able to use more than just one game at a time..

If you have an older computer with "X" pre-installed, xeyes is mildly entertaining. But, you could also create an alias or a shell script that does just about anything, using applescript, etc.

Messages will be synced across all devices logged in with the same AppleID ('the same iCloud'). To prevent that, have each kid set up their own AppleID and use that. You can still combine them into a family sharing setup afterwards.

Hide a User Account in macOS This works in OS X Yosemite (10.10 and newer). The general syntax to use to hide an account is as follows, replacing admin with the user home directory of the account to no longer display: Hiding from User Menu For example, to hide the user account “admin” on a Mac with the given user directory being /Users/admin, the syntax ...

You can search through the keyboard shortcuts with System Preferences -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts. For me, "Turn Dock Hiding On/Off" is Option ⌥ Command ⌘ D I don't see a keyboard shortcut for enabling/disabling Hot Corners (in High Sierra), though maybe your list is different?

There is a free and very simple way to limit time on iOS if you have an activation passcode. Launch the Clock app Set a Timer Make sure that "Stop Playing" is set under "Sounds." If a sound is set, naturally that plays. If "Stop Playing" is set, the device will go to the lock screen. Naturally, this will require your passcode or fingerprint! This ...

Sorry but iPads (and iPhones) aren't intended to be used as multi-user devices. At least not like you mean with different profiles like you would find in Windows devices or recent version of Android. The closest thing on iOS devices is Guided Access, where you can lock the device to a particular application and specify time limits. You need to enable it in "...

If an Apple ID is created as an iCloud.com account, you are unable to change the primary email address. You can add a rescue email address to the account, in order to make changing passwords or resetting security questions easier.

I might be late on this one, but I have a 6 year old daughter who wants to do stuff on my big Mac too, so I made a fun and educational game for her: Happy Cook- https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/happy-cook/id1052538652?mt=12 I also take it to go for her on my Android but it's also available on iOS and Window Phones. You can take a look too if you want it on ...

Think you could turn to bestappsforkids.com, well gathers many cool games for kids, such as I got Want My lollipop and Tom's Travels from there, which are my nephew's favorite game now.
