Can I block Snapchat from my child’s phone?

Yes, you can block Snapchat from your child’s phone using the methods described above. We recommend you also set up a 4-digit passcode to prevent them from changing the restrictions.

 

What if I forget my passcode?

You will need to factory reset your iPhone if you forget your passcode. This will erase all your data, so back up your device first. To factory reset your iPhone, go to Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings. Enter your passcode when prompted and confirm that you want to erase your iPhone.

 

How to block Snapchat on iPhone by limiting screen time

In iOS 12, Apple introduced a new feature called Screen Time. This lets you see how much time you and your family spend on your devices and set limits for specific apps. To use this feature to block Snapchat on your iPhone:

 

  1. Open the Settings app on your iPhone.
  2. Tap on Screen Time.
  3. Tap on Turn On Screen Time.
  4. Select This is My iPhone (or This is My Child’s iPhone).
  5. Follow the prompts to set up Screen Time.
  6. Once you’re finished, tap on App Limits.
  7. Tap on Add Limit.
  8. Select Social Networking from the list of app categories.
  9. Tap on Add at the top right of the screen.
  10. Exit the Settings app, and you’re done!

 

Now, Snapchat (and any other social networking apps) will be limited according to the parameters you set. For example, you could restrict Snapchat to 1 hour per day. The app will be blocked until the next day when the time limit is up.

 

Here’s how to turn off the screen time limit on iPhone

Open the Settings app on your iPhone.

  1. Tap on Screen Time.
  2. Select Turn Off Screen Time.
  3. Enter your passcode when prompted and confirm that you want to turn off Screen Time.
  4. Exit the Settings app, and you’re done!

 

Now, Snapchat will no longer be limited by Screen Time.
