    I want to remove the Settings icon from the home screen of my iphone using Ifile. Thank you

    P.s. I don't have the full version of ifile and cannot use the search option.

    Because I don't want the kids changing the DNS info and bypassing any security I may put on their iphone.

    Funny how you don't want them to bypass the security you put on their phone, yet you're bypassing the security Apple put on your phone. Oh the irony (or the hypocrisy). Put Find My Phone on and let the kids have a little trust. I was raised that trust was had until the moment I broke that trust.... all my friends who had controlling parents turned out to be nuts.... acting out as soon as they had a little freedom. It's like if you don't let your kid try a drink safely, they're going to do it behind your back and that's why Americans are so prone to teenage binge drinking and issues that go with it. Sometimes conservative is good, but sheltering a teenager from the world never ends well.

    You could just use Poof I think and hide it that way. Or if you own Springtomize you can hide apps with that tweak as well. I also think there's a tweak specifically for password protecting specific sections of the settings app so you don't have to hide the entire thing. There's also a couple tweaks to password protect entire apps. Up to you.

    Also, I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure if you use Ppf to hide an app, it also hides it from Spotlight.
