Install Safe Surfer with iOS DNS profile

It’s easy with Safe Surfer to install an effective porn blocker on an iPhone, iPad, or iPod device. Along with protecting your privacy, we also use our own behind-the-scenes technology to block porn and other harmful online content. This guide will efficiently walk you through how to install protection.

Install protection

Visit the Safe Surfer dashboard. Click the Devices menu on the left-hand sidebar.

Click the "+ New Device" button.

Click "Another PC, laptop, or smartphone".

Click iOS.

Click "Apply filter settings".

Enter a name for the device to be protected and click Done.

Scan the QR code with the Camera app of the device to be protected. Follow the instructions to get protected.

Once you've downloaded the profile file on the device to be protected, leave the web browser app and open the Files app. In the Downloads folder, tap the profile to install it. Once you've done this, leave the Files app and open the Settings app. Tap the Profile Downloaded section > Install.

Open the Files app again and delete the profile file.

Back on the Safe Surfer dashboard, visit the Devices menu and click the More Info button under the applicable device listing to check that there was recent internet activity (that is, "a couple of seconds ago").

Protection complete

Once you have finished installing Safe Surfer, this device should now be protected. If you visit our website on a protected device, the protection status bubble at the top of the page will be coloured green:

Verify the protection installation by visiting This is a safe website for testing if pornographic websites are being blocked. This site should be blocked.
