Question: Safari disappeared on iPad mini

I have an iPad mini 2 running the latest available iOS for it (11.2.6). Since yesterday, Safari is nowhere to be found. Disappeared from the dock, it’s greyed out in restrictions so I can’t enable it, doesn’t appear in the spotlight search. It flashed a couple of times on Siri’s suggested apps but quickly disappears. When I click on links - like the Siri suggested websites on the screenshot below - nothing happens. Siri can’t open it either.


From what I understand, it cannot be deleted but where is it? Does anyone have suggestions before I go and restore factory settings?

Answer:
Answer:

Your first screenshot shows that it's hidden by Restrictions. If disabling Restrictions doesn't get it to re-show do you have a profile installed on the iPad that might be causing it to be hidden ?

Oh well, thank you very much. It was installed for my daughter but she doesn’t really use the iPad so I just deleted both the app and the profile.


*** For anyone finding this via google, it was norton family’s management profile causing it.
