You can bind someone to a specific app so they can’t roam freely on your phone.

It comes in handy when you want to avoid a child ending up in your texts, photos, or an app where they might accidentally spend money.

The trick was shared by the TikTok star @dnay1.0 in a video that earned hundreds of likes.

“So this one is used when you go into a certain app and can’t exit that app at all,” the TikToker explained.

“And what I mean by that is if you have a child or someone else who is touching or playing with your phone.

“And you don’t want them to be able to leave that app and access something else in your phone.

“That’s what it will be used for.”

The feature leaves the screen on, but disables touch settings entirely.

This is great for teens who often like to bump and nudge the screen.

It’s also perfect for anyone who has a cat and an iPad – you can safely let them play with “virtual fish” apps.

How to enable Guided Access on iPhone

First you need to open the iPhone Settings app.

It’s the one with a gear icon.

Then scroll down to Accessibility which is in the section under the General heading.

Scroll to the bottom of the Accessibility page and tap Guided Access.

From there you can enable Guided Access as a feature. You can safely leave this on.

Then, when you want to lock the touchscreen, you can just triple-click the home button quickly.

If you have a newer iPhone without a Home button, triple-click the side button instead.
