How to use Guided Access (with video)

I’ve had a lot of families asking about using Guided Access lately. For those who don’t know, Guided Access is a great feature that allows you to disengage the home button and parts of the user’s screen, effectively locking them INTO an app. It’s a must have for use of the iPad as a communication device. Here are the steps to set it up, as well as a video that goes over  how to use it (for those of you who are visual learners).

Setting up Guided Access:

  • Go to SETTINGS.
  • Select GENERAL.
  • Select ACCESSIBILITY.
  • Select GUIDED ACCESS.
  • Turn on Guided Access by PUSHING button on RIGHT SIDE (it will turn green).
  • Select PASSCODE SETTINGS.
  • Select SET GUIDED ACCESS PASSCODE.
  • Enter passcode of your choice (WRITE IT DOWN SOMEWHERE ELSE). Note: If your client knows the password to turn ON the device, use the same passcode for the Guided Access Option.
  • Select ACCESSIBILITY SHORTCUT (button will turn green)
  • Select TIME LIMITS (Optional)

Here’s the video:
