Customer Question

I just received a message on my phone that my daughters phone which was associated with my Apple ID was asking permission to add for FaceTime. If she claims she did not touch the setting are there any other ways this could be possible?

Hi,

I'm sorry about the issue. Another possibility is if she download / install another app that requires Facetime, like FaceNow app:

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/facenow-facetime-messages/id379980390?mt=8

If you'd like to, you can enable parental controls by going to Settings -> General -> Restrictions, and Enable Restrictions, then turn off Facetime. Full information about Restrictions (parental controls):

I restricted any downloading of apps. Could you lost me a few other ways so I can deduce? Would a software update be one reason?
Expert:  Viet - Mac Tech replied 1 year ago.

That's the only two ways I could think of, touching setting or downloading app. Did you do the iOS software update (version 9) recently? Is Restrictions still showing ON and Installing App option is not allowed now? Thank you.

The phone software was updated 3-4 days ago could this be one of the reasons? If so, would there be a delay when the FaceTime activation notice was sent to my phone?
Expert:  Viet - Mac Tech replied 1 year ago.

No, it is not a reason, and there is no delay for facetime activation notice. Thank you.
