    We use Pandora through an iPod for background music at our clinic. One of our employees is constantly doing thumbs down thus deleting some of our favorite music (he cannot be fired since he is a family member).

    My question - is there a way to set a password that prevent thumbing and only the password owner could perform any actions.

    Thank you

    Basically, no. iOS devices and apps are not designed to be used by multiple users with differing levels of authority. They're designed to be truly personal computers. It's all-or-nothing. There will be apps that require passwords or Touch ID to access (mostly for extra security for banking apps and the like), and you can set Restrictions (parental controls) that will then affect anyone using the device, but that's all. No separate logins for "Boss" and "Employee."

    Is it necessary for everyone to have access to that iPod Touch? If there's not already a passcode on the thing, add a passcode and give the code only to those you can trust. If it already has a passcode, change it, and give it only to those you can trust.

    Would you really fire someone for "thumbs down," whether or not they were a family member? Sure, that might be one of many offenses that add up to a firing... but yeah, that's the problem with employing family. You take the bad with the good.

    Thank you for the suggestion. I am completely ignorant of iPod technology but have forwarded your message to our guru and will let you knoiw the outcome.

    The note about firing was facetious - we never fire anyone, especially family
