How do you disable WiFi on an iPod Touch 5th Generation?

I'm getting my kids IPod Touch 5's for Christmas, but want to disable (for the time being) all WiFi. Is this process similar to the process you have outlined for the Generation 4 model?

Thanks a bunch!

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Yes, it is software, so the process is fairly similar.

Let me know if you need further help.

I know wifi can be turned off in settings, but my kids can just turn it back on. Looking for a way to make it hard for them to do that!

If you have a Mac you can use the Apple Configurator program from the Mac App Store to lock down any iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch in all sorts of ways, including disabling wifi and preventing anyone from turning it back on (except you of course).

For windows there is the iPhone Configuration Utility which may be able to do the same things.

I checked out Configurator, and it's pretty slick. Thanks so much for the tip! I didn't see a setting that would essentially disable WiFi, however....

I think you can also do it in restrictions.
