How do I use JavaScript?

Turn JavaScript On or OffJavaScript is a programming language that enables many website features. Some programmers, however, can use this language with bad intentions and wreak havoc on those unfortunate enough to visit their site. Your device supports JavaScript as a default setting, but you can turn it off if you know you're going to visit suspicious websites. Here's how:

  1. Open Settings>Safari.

Slide the JavaScript feature to the OFF position.

  3. Turn it back on when you're finished visiting suspicious sites. Many sites won't work without JavaScript.

Turn off JavaScript if you're going to suspicious sites. Turn it back on when you're finished.
