While adults understand what’s good and what’s not, kids are not able to do the same. After all, they’re just kids. Apple made sure that parents can control and restrict certain activities. There is a Parental Control feature available on Mac and iOS devices. With this feature, you can restrict certain activities, which is extremely useful when you want to make sure your kids are using the iPhone or Mac in a right manner. This will keep them away from bad web contents.
The basis of this feature is the admin user, who will control, and monitor the other user (a child), by using Parental controls.
For many parents, Parental controls is a dream come true. I will discuss some important features shortly, including how to activate and how to use Parental Controls on Mac.
