Digital Nation Tip: Create an Apple ID for your child

Welcome to the new school year-Welcome to the new School Year-DN Tips

Digital Nation Tip

Create an Apple ID for your child Instead of sharing an account with your child, which can give them unwanted access to your personal data, create a Child Apple ID for them. Then you can easily set age-based parental controls, and they can use Family Sharing, Messages, the App Store, and other Apple services. 

When you add a child to your Family Sharing group or set up a device for a child, you can customize parental controls from the start. You can change those settings at any time. Follow the onscreen instructions during setup to add any of the following:

  • Age-related restrictions for content in apps, books, TV shows, and movies
  • Downtime and limits for specific apps
  • Restrictions for who your child can communicate with
  • Approvals for purchases or free downloads
