Are you wanting to turn on, turn off, or restrict the FaceTime app on your iPhone or iPad device, but not too sure how to do it? Today, we’re going to walk you through the steps and show you (with pictures) how to do all of these things. Let’s start with how to turn FaceTime on.
This will launch the settings app on your device.
When you see FaceTime appear on your settings page, tap it once.
To the right of “FaceTime,” you’ll see a slider. Slide the circle to the right. When the switch turns green, it is enabled.
Now you’re all set to use FaceTime on your iOS device.
Those are all of the instructions for how to enable FaceTime. Now let’s go over the steps for how to turn it off.
This will allow you to access your device’s settings.
Tap once on FaceTime when you see it appear.
Beside “FaceTime” you’ll see a toggle. Move it to the left to disable the app. When the switch turns white, it is turned off.
Those are all the steps to turning FaceTime off. If you want to take it a step further and restrict the app, you can do so with restriction controls.
Tap the Settings icon to access your device settings.
Select General to view and edit your device’s main settings.
To view, enable, or edit app restrictions on your device, tap Restrictions.
If you haven’t already enabled restrictions on your device, tap Enable Restrictions.
To protect your restriction settings (to keep anyone else from tampering with them) choose a 4-digit passcode.
Beside “FaceTime” there will be a switch. By default, the switch will be green (unrestricted). To restrict the app on your device, move the switch to the left. When the switch is white, the app is restricted. This will remove the app’s icon from your home screen so it cannot be opened or used.
That’s all you have to do to restrict the app on your iPhone or iPad.
