How to stop app downloads

Help! I’ve got settings and apps blocked, but my son keeps downloading Instagram and house party… I think its thru iCloud??

I want to block all download of apps do hw requests permission. How do I do this? Thx

Hi @Michelle_Wahl! As far as I know, Apple still does not allow for an app to remain permanently deleted once installed. There are some iOS Screen Time settings you can use to better safeguard purchases from the iTunes/App Store-

Settings > Screen Time (child’s profile) > Content & Privacy Restrictions > iTunes & App Store Purchases > type in your 4-digit Screen Time passcode. You might consider enabling “Don’t Allow” for Installing Apps, Deleting Apps, and In-app Purchases. You will have to manually change to “Allow” when needing to install an app, and back to “Don’t Allow” when finished.

Hope that helps! :nerd_face:
