Is there anyway a parent can track their child's use of his or her iPad?
How about iPad blocking adult material on the iPad?
Thank you.

Hello - assume that you have looked at Settings > General > Restrictions which will allow parental control of the iPad w/ a passcode - information HERE (look at the bottom items that can be expanded).

As to tracking, Safari of course will keep a browsing history and if this can be locked w/ restrictions enabled (don't know - I've never used this feature on my iPad), then that may serve your purpose. Not sure if there are any iPad apps available that would help, so hopefully others will 'chime in' about the issue. Dave

My 8 year old has his own iPad Mini. I have set restrictions such that Safari is disabled entirely. In its place, I've added the K9 Web Browser for iPad, which has fantastic filtering capabilities.

Aside from this measure, you can tweak and tune what actions you want your child to be able to perform in the 'Restrictions' area Dave mention above. I just wanted to chime in regarding K9 as I use it with great success, not only on my iDevices, but also on my PCs and Macs. It not only keeps the cruft out, but also prevents someone from stumbling into malware.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
