    Living in Denmark we don't have all the data limitation plans, and Operators using Tethering as a block for sharing data, using my IPAD as personal Hot Spot

    But i would like to actually block that option for my kids, so they can not enable this feature/function.

    Any one had any luck or knowledge about this, that i can reuse, either in the General Settings/Parental Control or by APP.

    Maybe an App that actually shows the data used in by apps or sharing mode?

    This only applies to iPads with the cellular feature. Pull the SIM out when you give it to your kids or better yet buy them their own iPad without cellular.

    I am afraid you are out of luck on this project. It seems it is not possible at a user level to leave cell data on and lock out Hotspot.

    Of course telling your kids not to use the feature might also be a plan.

    According to Apple, you can stop anyone from using the iPads cellular data by putting a sim pin on it.

    The way I understand the problem, the op wants to allow them to use cellular data but not be able to hotspot it.

    That's true. I wonder if there is a way through a mod in Cydia?

    Possibly, I haven't done JB in several years though.
