When “Content and Privacy” restrictions are turned on in your phone’s settings, the ability to enable any safari extension will be blocked.

  1. Go to “Settings”
  1. Navigate to “Screen Time”
  1. Open “Content and Privacy Restrictions”
  1. Disable “Content and Privacy Restrictions” if it is currently enabled.
  1. Retry enabling the GoLinks Safari Extension
  1. Re-enable “Content and Privacy Restrictions”
