How To Setup Parental Controls On iPhone, iPad & iPod Touch


This article is a step-by-step guide to set up parental controls on iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.

Summary: Setup Mobicip on your child's iOS device in child mode. Setup Mobicip on your own iOS or Android phone in parent mode.


Mobicip is an integrated parental control app that allows you to restrict screentime, Internet, apps and videos on your family's devices and computers. The same app doubles up, in parent mode, as the remote control from your phone where you can make changes or take instant actions.

Download Mobicip from App Store on your iPhone or iPad and open the app to select Parent as the primary user.
