I have no knowledge of the iOS system, asking this on behalf.


The need is to control/limit access to Youtube while allowing access to other sites on an iPad.


Is there an app that will do this that can not be easily subverted?


Ideally something that would have a timer function to allow access for a set period of time.


I am imagining a scenario where the adult unlocks access via a password and is able to set it for say 10 minutes after which access is locked again.

I think the YouTube kids app provides a timer for usage which then shuts the app down until unlocked by an adult.

If you are on Bigpipe you can do something like this remotely from your smartphone via the Bigpipe app - restrict video streaming but leave all other parts of the internet.

Only way to subvert would be:
1) kids having access to your Bigpipe account details
2) using a vpn to mask the traffic
