Hi Philip,

I understand that your iPhone has Restrictions enabled, but you'd like to know why you're still able to press and hold on the tab button in Safari and see the option for a new private tab. I'm happy to provide some help for this.

While you can disable Safari entirely, or disable access to certain types of websites, disabling this particular features is not supported with Restrictions. You can find out more about what this supports in the article below:

Thanks for using the Apple Support Communities. Cheers!
