iOS Tip: Stop nosy people with Guided Access
You know the situation:
One photo on your iPhone or iPad that you want to share. Not online. No.
You want to hand your iPhone or iPad to somebody so s/he can look at it.
Obviously, there is a good chance that person will look at the pic for all of 0.2 seconds
before s/he starts swiping left or right to see your other dirty laundry.
How can you easily prevent that from happening?
That is where a useful iOS feature comes into play.
It's so useful that Apple decided to hide it. In the Accessibility sub-menu.
It's called "Guided Access", and if you're anything like me, you had visions
of Labradors wearing neon and a complex leash the one time you noticed it in the Settings menu.
Steven Tweedie over on BusinessInsider
explains how to keep the photo-snoops from swiping through your photo album.
Once you 'get it', it's quite simple. And obviously, Guided Access has other useful applications - showing people one and only one email, e.g. by disabling touch on the screen.
