Disable Private Browsing Iphone

ButPrivate Browsing on Android and Apple tablets and smartphones cannot be disabled. Android devices often come installed with Google’s Chrome browser. (Which includes Incognito browsing). And iPhones, iPads and iPods use Safari.

Explicit content is something which children cannot keep their eyes away! And as a parent, you must take care of your child and block unwanted websites in Safari so that they cannot access them. But oh boy! Aren’t they smart enough to find alternatives to such websites? Of course, they are, and accessing such websites in the private browser doesn’t reflect it in history as well. So why not completely turn off Safari private browsing on your iPhone or iPad in iOS 14 / 13? Well, that could be the best way to ensure your child does not watch dirty content anymore!

  3. Now tap on Content Restrictions and then scroll down to tap on Web Content.
  4. Select Limit Adult Websites option from the list. Once activated, you can also add a few websites which you never want to allow from Never Allow option. The Private option will be grayed out.
  5. You can confirm it by opening the Safari and bring up tab switcher from the right bottom corner. Now, you will not be able to open Private browsing mode as it’s disabled from settings on your iPhone.
