How Do I Supervise My Child’s iOS Device?

Overview

A 'Supervised' iOS device allows you to have a more holistic control over your child's digital experience and will ensure that all the premium features work correctly. Specifically, in order to block unnecessary/inappropriate apps and games, you need to install our "Supervision" tool on your child's iPhone or iPad. In other words, you will be able to block unnecessary/inappropriate apps and games from your child's device only on a Supervised iPhone or iPad. Other features like tracking your child's location, applying screen time and customizing the filter settings will work without the supervision tool. 

Please make sure that you do iTunes or iCloud backup of your child's device before installing the supervision tool, so that you can use it later to bring the device back to the state it was in. We do offer an "Unsupervise" tool to remove the supervision when needed without having to lose any data from the device since you started the supervision. 

Steps

Download and install Mobicip Supervision tool onto your Windows PC (32 bit / 64 bit) or Mac. Then launch it and login with your Mobicip account credentials. Make sure that the specific child device is connected to the computer. Please make sure that you do iTunes or iCloud backup before initiating the supervision process. 

Follow the steps to complete the process.

Repeat the same steps for your other household devices.
