How to Bypass Iphone Restrictions

If they want to, your children will find a way around your parental controls. Parental controls are there to protect them against the negative effects of overuse of digital media. It’s important that you talk with them about them. These controls are important to you.

Talk to them about how BIG TECH intends to manipulate them for their profit. People hate manipulation. People hate manipulation.

How can your children get around parental controls and bypass them on iPhone? Let’s take a look at seven ways to bypass parental controls on iPhone.

Find the Passwords
You must be vigilant to avoid this happening. It is important that your passwords are not obvious. If they are using a password-protected device, change the password.

Use Factory-Reset on the Device
A desperate situation calls for a desperate measure. Your teen may become so dependent on her device that they cannot live without it, she might reset it to factory settings to erase all data she has stored. To ensure that they don’t lose data, a person who plans ahead will back up their data on a cloud or computer before the reset. You can also set parental controls.

To see if there have been any changes to your connected accounts and data, check your device’s settings. You can monitor your child’s activity from your device and look for unusual inconsistencies, such as being on the phone but not using traffic. Locate the parental control software that your device has installed if necessary. If new apps (unauthorized) have been downloaded, the device will detect it.

Use a VPN (Virtual Private Network).
Even though it might seem paradoxical VPNs can be used as a privacy tool. You can use them as part of parental control apps to protect your family against Big Data and advertisers’ prying eyes. Your kids may also be able to use technology like VPNs to bypass your security.

Virtual private networks route all traffic to a separate server, and hide all of the user’s online activities. It is a red flag that your teenager has installed a VPN application on his smartphone. This is to block your parental controls being activated. Children who use free VPNs could be considered a data privacy risk. If the service is offered for free, the company will receive your child’s data. It could contain viruses or intrusive ads.

How do you check?

Check if you see a VPN app icon on your screen

In the search bar, type “VPN”, to locate the VPN app for your phone

If you have an Apple device, search the App Store for “VPN”, and verify that it is marked as downloaded (Apple), or has the open/uninstall button (Android).

The VPN icon will be located in the upper left corner of the screen, next to the cell signal.

You must be aware that anyone downloading or installing any apps is illegal. To access the app store, our family uses a parent ID. It will be useful to delete the VPN app. Talk about how mistakes online can cause trouble. It is impossible for you to defend someone you don’t know.

You can change the time settings of your device.
Are there any rules that our parents have placed on how much time we can spend with our children? We can simply change the time zone settings for the children and they will be fooled.

It is important to not make any changes to your device’s system settings including the time zone settings. On iOS: Screen Time > Content Privacy Restrictions > Location Service > System Services > Setting Time Zone

Logging In On Different Or Guest Account
Today, it is common to create a new Gmail or Xbox account, Apple, Microsoft account, or any other account. Then, pretend to be an adult user and lie about your age. These accounts bypass parental controls and allow the child to sign in without their parents’ consent.

Google and other companies can remove parental supervision from children aged 13 years or older without consulting parents. This is because the law protects only under-13s against privacy threats. Odd. It’s possible to restrict logins to certain accounts so that guests cannot use the system. These options are available in most parental control systems.

Clearing parental controls data from the device
Clearing data, storage and parental controls for an app is easy as it can all be done from within the device’s settings. Any app associated with Google Play will reset its parental controls settings to the defaults if it is an app associated with the Google Play Store or a parental control app with content restrictions.

Check to see if the app in question was recently reinstalled. You can access AppStore on your iPhone or iPad by clicking on the Account icon > Purchased >My purchases. This will display all apps that have been downloaded and the dates.

You can delete and re-download an app
The App Limit is reached when the parent has reached it. When this happens, the child will delete and reinstall the app to continue using their screen time. For deleting or reinstalling apps, parental permission must not be revoked. It is done in iOS Screen Time > Content & Privacy Restrictions>> Type in your Screen Time passcode> Toggle “Installing Apps”, “Deleting Apps”, and “In-app Purchases” to Don’t Allow.

As you can see, there are many ways your kids can get around parental controls on iPhone. It is not enough to have parental control.
