How does a troubled parent block a website his child uses? FamiSafe, today's top Parental Control, Website Blocker, and Content Filter, is the solution. We discuss its features and how to block websites on iPhone in this post.

Block Websites on Kid's iPhone

Modern technology has its draws and flaws. You may want to consider them before giving an iPhone to your child.

The internet has its advantages, and parents should harness them for the benefit of their children.

1. Unlimited access to information

First of all, a wealth of information exists on the internet. Search Google and find out what you need to know in a matter of seconds. Many websites teach children about world affairs, history, pets - the list is endless. They can tour the Globe with just a click.

2. Makes studying easier

The internet makes studying less of a chore. Wikipedia and other websites give information and lots of examples. They also provide related images and presentations for reference.

3. Interesting

Children take more interest in their homework when they conduct their research using the internet. It also makes them feel mature and capable of understanding material.

However, if you are not internet savvy, you may wonder why there is a need to block websites on iPhone. The truth is that your child exposes himself to countless dangers every time he or she goes online. They are the reason you need a reliable website blocker and content filter.

1. Cyberbullying

Cyberbullying takes many forms. It includes sending victims hate messages, spreading false rumors about them or even sending them threats.

It differs from the bullying that takes place in school. For one thing, it is hard to filter online. Cyberbullies do not witness the impact their actions have on victims, which encourages them to continue with their behavior. Therefore, parents need an app that filters out unsavory online bullies.

2. Child Explioitation

Young children can be too trusting. They interact with virtual strangers and find themselves compromised online. Many become victims of exploitation. The problem exists no matter what apps a child uses. Many child predators are now scouring social media sites, which is a reason to use FamiSafe to block them.

3. Pornography

Pornography can turn up anywhere and surprise children. Furthermore, parents may not realize that their children may be searching for porn online. You may worry that using a website-filtering app like FamiSafe means that you are crossing your child's boundaries, but keeping him safe is enough reason to install it.

4. Destroyed Reputations

Cameras abound these days, and children are victims because of inexperience. Some of them may post compromising photographs which they will regret doing later.

5. Distractions

The internet can cause children to lose track of time and lose focus on their homework. They may become so attached to it that they refuse to engage in other activities.

6. Bad Health Habits

Children adopt unhealthy posture while surfing the internet. They develop headaches as well. Sitting in front of computers the whole day may also affect their growth.
