The Restrictions feature on your iPhone SE is an effective way to block some of the features and functionality on the device that you either don’t want or need, or that you are concerned about someone else using. But the Restrictions can be pretty definitive, and you may find that you turned something off that you now need to be able to use.
Fortunately the Restrictions menu is also something that can be turned on or off as needed. So find your Restrictions passcode and follow the tutorial below to see how you can stop the Restrictions on your iPhone SE and start using the full capabilities of the device.

Step 2: Choose the General option.
Step 3: Scroll down and select Restrictions.
Step 4: Enter the Restrictions passcode.
Step 5: Touch the Disable Restrictions button at the top of the screen. Note that you can also scroll down and disable or enable any options on this menu, if you would prefer to leave Restrictions turned on.
