We have created a comprehensive guide which outlines steps parents can take to prevent the removal of the Netsanity Device Profile as well as preventing the removal of the VPN. This guide assumes that the device which Netsanity is installed on has either a fingerprint sensor or facial recognition (Touch ID or FaceID). Devices without Touch ID / FaceID will have limited options for enforcement.

Common Questions and Answers

  1. Can you hide the "VPN" icon from appearing on the device? No, that is built into the Apple iOS and only Apple can change that
  2. Can you make the VPN always on? Yes, but that would create a very high battery drain. Also, in a case of any network disruption, the internet would be unavailable and it can "brick" the device.
  3. Can you simply prevent the user from deleting the profile? Apple only allows this option for devices in a special mode. It is generally not available to consumers but Netsanity is exploring that for high-risk users.
