Access Camera

With the Mobile Zone App installed you can control access to the device's camera. This may reduce the risk of sharing inappropriate material. If you set this restriction to NO then on iOS (Apple) the camera app will disappear and on Android it won’t operate.


Access iTunes (on Apple iOS)

With the Mobile Zone App installed you can control access to the iTunes App on iOS (Apple) devices. This can reduce your family's exposure to inappropriate content and undesirable purchases. The iTunes app will disappear when this restriction is set to NO.


Explicit iTunes Content (on Apple iOS)

With the Mobile Zone App installed you can control access to explicit material streamed on Apple's Music and Podcast services within iTunes on iOS (Apple) devices. Apple determines what content is defined as explicit. Explicit content will be greyed out or won’t appear in iTunes when this restriction is set to NO.


Permit App Installs

You can control the ability for your family members to install apps on devices with the Mobile Zone App installed. On iOS (Apple) the App Store will disappear and on Android, Google Play won’t operate, when this restriction is set to NO.


Permit Screen Capture (on Apple iOS)

With the Mobile Zone App installed you can control access to screen capture feature on iOS (Apple) devices. This reduces risks of family members sharing inappropriate material with their friends or others. Screen capture won’t operate when this restriction is set to NO.


Permit in App Purchases (on Apple iOS)

Most apps today that are aimed at minors encourage spending through "in-app purchases". With the Mobile Zone App installed you can control access to in-app purchases on iOS devices. In-app purchases won’t operate when this restriction is set to NO.
