To block websites on Safari for iPhone and iPad in iOS 10, you need to perform a few easy tasks on your iOS devices running on iOS 10. But why should you block websites on Safari? This question arises from the fact that kids are using iPads and iPhones, which actually belong to their parents. A single unintentional tap can open a website, which has objectionable content a kid is not supposed to consume.

In this situation, users have to block websites on Safari on iPhone and iPad. Moreover, there are many websites that carry virus, and hence, you need to block such pages on your device. Apple rolled out a feature in iOS 7 to block any website on Safari. With the passage of time, this feature has become smarter. And now in iOS 10, blocking websites is easy and simple.

For once, you might think that you should turn off Wi-Fi connection and mobile data on your iOS device before giving it to kids. But they are smart enough to open internet connection on your iPhone/iPad. Hence, restrict them from accessing any bad content on Safari.
