How to Block Snapchat on iPhone in iOS

Snapchat is loved by everyone, especially teenagers who love to collaborate and have fun. There is no harm in using such multimedia messaging apps until someone uses them excessively. Kids are more exposed to such platforms, and as a parent, you must take authority over your kids’ devices before their mental health takes its toll.

You can block any app on the iPhone or iPad in the settings or download any parental control app to make things easier.

With any parental control application, you can manage your kids’ devices, and keep tabs on what they browse, install or delete on their smartphones. However, Parental control features in iPhone or iPad are limited.

Anyway, you can block any application on your iPhone with the help of screen time or downtime. If you want a more appropriate and straightforward solution, download the Familysafe or other apps like life360 to have more control over an individual device.
