If you plan on sharing your iPad with those in your home, you probably want to make sure that the little ones don’t have access to movies that are rated R or music that contains explicit lyrics. Like the iPhone the iPad allows you to restrict the Apps that can be used, the rating of the content that can be viewed, and whether or not Apps can be purchased. When enabled this feature requires that the user enter a password in order to view the restricted content.

1. Tap on Settings in the Home Screen.
2. Tap on General in the Settings pane.
3. Tap on Restrictions in the General pane.
