Introducing App Hiding for iOS

We just released an update to curbi that allows for an iOS feature that parents have been asking for for months. It's called App Hiding.  This includes apps that are built in (Safari, Camera, etc) and apps that been installed from the App Store.

How might you use this as a parent? One of curbi's key features is being able to control internet based traffic. This includes apps like Netflix, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, etc. Let's say that your child has a game that isn't using the internet, though. Previously, curbi couldn't help you manage this app because there was no way for it to block everything.

App hiding will allow you to hide these apps during your Timeout and Block All rules.

Be sure to visit the App Store to make sure you have the most up to date curbi parent app. You can also login to our web portal. To enable this feature, go to the Device tab on the curbi parent app, tap Manage Settings, and enable App Hiding. This will trigger the curbi helper app to install on the enrolled device. You can learn more about this process on our support site

As an amazing parental control service for iPhones, iPads, iPod touches, and Android devices, we are doing all that we can to help you manage your child's devices. We're excited to roll this out to you.
