If you feel it is not working or you have turned it off, you can enable or disable the FaceTime all by yourself. To keep it safe from the access of others, you can even lock it by using parental restrictions.

Now, the questions are:

  • How can you enable or disable the FaceTime?
  • How can you restrict the FaceTime by using parental control?

  • Go to the Setting App from your iPad, iPod touch, iPhone or Mac.
  • Look for the FaceTime option and go in it.
  • Switch the FaceTime slider present at the top, to the ON position.
  • You will be able to make video calls as soon as the activation process is completed.
  • In order to disable it, change the ON to OFF position and then you won’t be able to make further video calls. In the same way, you can turn your FaceTime on again whenever you need to, simply by changing the settings.
