    Ios newbie here

    I have bought an iMac to replace one of my pcs.

    I need to have folders which my children can't see and also want to restrict their Internet browsing to non-adult rated sites.

    This was easy on windows 7 as I just gave my kids individual logins, and switched on parental control for them.

    How can I do the same on iOS Lion ?

    Many thanks in advance

    Easy! :) Just go to :apple: > System Preferences > Accounts. Then open separate accounts for whoever.

    Alternatively you could trust your children?

    If not tho, go to System Preferences, Parental Controls. It should be reasonably intuitive from there.
