How to Block Websites on an iPhone with Circle

April 5, 2022

Keep your kids safe with the right iPhone parental control settings and by adding Circle to cover all your kids’ devices.

Can you block websites on iPhone? 

Blocking explicit content

  • On the iPhone Home screen, tap Settings.
  • Tap Screen Time.
  • Select Content & Privacy Restrictions.
  • Enter a passcode when instructed to do so. It can be any four-digit combination.
  • Turn on the Content & Privacy Restrictions toggle switch. You may be prompted to enter your system passcode to continue.
  • Tap Content Restrictions.
  • Select Web Content.
  • Tap Limit Adult Websites.
  • Exit the Settings app to save the Screen Time settings.

Restricting web browsing to only approved sites

How to add sites on this list:

  • Scroll to the bottom of the approved websites list and tap Add Website.
  • In the Title text box, enter the name of the website.
  • In the URL text box, enter the website address.
  • Tap Web Content (or Websites) to go back to the previous screen. Repeat for as many sites as you want.
  • Exit the settings. The sites you added are automatically saved. Inevitably, your kids will try a website that's not on the approved list. When that happens, they will see a message saying the site is blocked. An automatic Allow Website link will populate so that you can add it to the approved list if they ask and you agree, but they can't add it themselves without the passcode.
