Question: How to re-enable safari from restrictions?

Both my kids iPads have had Safari disabled for some time. I want to enable them, but under the restrictions section of settings, Safari is greyed out. I tried to enable all restrictions, but that did not work either. I tried to reset the iPad but that did not work either. This has occurred on both my kids iPads

Hmmm... That's a bit weird. Are you sure you didn't give them a configuration profile as well (see if you have one under Settings>General; it will be an option if you do have one)? Try disabling all restrictions (temporarily, of course!). Does that give you back Safari?

Then you probably don't have a configuration profile. If you have removed restrictions from the device and still can't see it, try going to Settings>General>Reset>Reset Home Screen Layout to make sure that Safari isn't just buried on some app folder on your iPad.

Reseting the home screen did not work. Spot light search does not find safari. The restrictions are turned off. I have tried turning them off and on several times. If they are not turning off completely (though they appear they are) how would I know? What could I do about it? I am beginning to think my only choice is to Reset Network Settings? Any other ideas?


BTW, Thanks for your help so far.

Well, you have a stubborn issue. Resetting network settings wouldn't do anything beyond resetting all of the saved Wi-Fi passwords (and stuff like that) that you've got on your iPad. I would talk to Apple Support at this point (and make sure that you tell them the sort of thing that you've mentioned to me): Get started


No problem! 🙂 I'm just sorry that I can't seem to troubleshoot your issue! :/
