Set up JusProgDNS for iOS operating systems (iPhone/iPad)

With JusProgDNS you can make surfing the Internet safe for children and teenagers on smartphones and tablets with iOS operating system. JusProgDNS is quick and easy to set up on Apple iPhone and iPad and works in all versions.

Note: However, filtering with JusProgDNS in the iOS operating system has technical limitations, as Apple allows very few settings in the iOS operating system. JusProgDNS must be set up separately for each WLAN and is not configurable for mobile traffic. The bypass protection is unsatisfactory.

For many usage situations, JusProgDNS for iOS is a good protection system: For tablets connected via WLAN to the home DSL box or e.g. the school network, JusProgDNS is a useful and effective parental control program for iOS. For more mobile iPhones and iPads with SIM card, which are used more often outside the home or in frequently changing locations, we recommend installing the free-to-use JusProg parental control app for iOS (iPhone and iPad) instead of using JusProgDNS.

Tip: JusProg e.V. offers a free-to-use parental control browser for iOS operating systems (iPhone / iPad). This parental control program for iOS offers significantly more functions and setting options than JusProgDNS, including the management of multiple child profiles with different age levels and a parent mode. Browsing with alternative browsers (Safari) can be prevented. You can get the JusProg Parental Control Browser for iOS from the Apple App Store (link call with iPhone/iPad). Apple App Store .

Step-by-step instructions for JusProgDNS parental control in iPhone and iPad.

Open the “Settings” (app icon) in your iPhone or iPad and select the item “WLAN” by clicking on it. Then select the WLAN for which you want to set up JusProgDNS and click on the name of the WLAN. The WLAN you are currently connected to is marked with a green check mark in the front.

The settings should be repeated for all frequently used WLAN connections.

Then click on “Configure DNS” in the lower part of the details on the following page

By default, the setting is “Automatic”, select “Manual” instead.

In the DNS Servers section, click the green Add Server plus sign.

In the DNS Servers section, click the green Add Server plus sign.

When you have clicked on “Add Server”, you can enter the two IP addresses from the box. Enter the 1st IP addresses at the top and the 2nd IP address below. You usually do not need the IPv6 information.

The dots are already in the boxes, so you only need and are allowed to enter the numbers.

Important: Check carefully that all numbers have been entered correctly. Even small mistakes will prevent you from surfing the Internet. In this case, you can correct the information at this point again.

Afterwards, take a screenshot of the information that was already in the “DNS server” area (or write it down), so that you can reset the settings later if necessary.

Then click on the red minus sign to delete the name servers that are not needed. This is important because otherwise the other name servers could “allow” websites that JusProgDNS would block for the age level.

Then click “Save” at the top right of the screen to save the settings.

Congratulations, you have set up JusProgDNS for iOS, your child can now surf safely with iPhone or iPad in the configured WLAN. Repeat the process if necessary for other more frequently used WLANs.

Test whether the entry of JusProgDNS into your iPhone or iPad worked.

Before letting a child surf on the iPhone or iPad, as an adult (without your child present), first test whether JusProgDNS has been set up correctly in the iOS operating system and the child filter for the Internet is working.

To test the JusProg parental control program for iOS, first call up the website of the children’s search engine to test whether the end device can still surf the Internet. fragFINN is unlocked “from 0 years”. Then call up the website of a well-known porn site with the iPhone/iPad, for example, and check whether a blocking page is displayed instead of the erotic content. For encrypted websites (https://), the connection will be terminated.

If the test is successful, you can let your child surf the configured WLAN with the iPhone or iPad. If the test is not successful, please check whether you have completed all entries and steps in the iOS operating system correctly and, if necessary, consult our FAQ.

Make JusProgDNS in the iOS operating system circumvention-proof?

If your child is at an age where he or she could independently reset the settings made above for the name servers, you should consider using the JusProg children’s browser instead of JusProgDNS. Because in the settings, the use of other (unprotected) browsers can be prevented.

Unfortunately, Apple’s iOS operating system offers only limited options for securing individual functions and settings – unfortunately, access to the name server settings is not included, so they can currently not be secured in this way. If you want to prevent individual functions, here’s how:

  1. Call up the “Settings
  2. First tap on “General” and then on “Restrictions”.
  3. Now use “Enable Restrictions” to set a PIN for these iPhone/iPad settings that they can remember, but that your child does not know (not the pin of the device or SIM card)
  4. Turn off access to the “Settings” that you do not want your child to be able to change.

Another option for securing is “Guided access”. With this function, only one app is activated at a time. Here’s how it works:

1. call up the “settings
2. first tap on “General” and then on “Operating aids” and then on “Guided access”. 3.
3. activate the “Guided access
4. activate the “Code settings” and assign a PIN
5. launch the app you want to restrict and tap the Home button 3 times. Only this one app can be used now.
To exit the “Guided access” mode again, tap 3 x on the home screen and enter the PIN assigned above. The mode is ended.

Unfortunately, these functionalities are realistically unsatisfactory, but Apple does not allow more advanced safeguards on iPhone and iPad. Alternatively, you can use the parental control settings of the iOS operating system.
