    Supervised mode mainly allows you to install profiles with more restrictions. Entering supervised mode is useless, if you don’t have profiles. I haven’t listed profiles here, yet. This is mainly for people who use Apple Configurator 2 or imazing profile editor to create their own profiles but the profiles fails to install on their Apple devices because their devices are not supervised.

    iOS supervised mode is a mode that allows you have more power than available normally and more importantly, it will allow you to enforce restrictions that can't be enforced using Screen Time. It also allows you to enable Screen Time features by installing .mobileconfig files. You could use that, if you don't want anyone to enter a PIN for you and if you don't want to use a recovery Apple ID.

    In addition, you could:

    *Enforce a DNS (iOS 14 and above)
    *Block specific apps completely (using BundleID)
    *Block VPN connections or even use Always On VPN.
    *Block Find My iPhone
    *Use URL filters
    *Prevent removal of profiles using password protection.

    Normally, you would need a Mac, Apple Configurator 2 and you'd need to wipe your device. In this post, you will find out there is a way to enter supervised mode in 5 minutes from Windows/Mac without losing any data or wiping your device.

    1-Download the latest version of iTunes.
    2-Create a Mobicip account: open the following link, enter the required info (Name, email and password), click Sign up THEN close the tab when it asks you for a credit card.
    https://www.mobicip.com/signup
    3-Download and install Mobicip Supervision:
    https://www.mobicip.com/supervise
    On Windows, two apps will be installed: Mobicip and Mobicip Supervision. We only need Mobicip Supervision.
    4-Open Mobicip Supervision, login using your Mobicip account then follow the steps to enter Supervised mode (You'll have to disable Find My iPhone).

    If supervision failed, you'll probably have to use another PC/Mac. Try backing up your iPhone using iTunes, if it failed this means the issue is with the PC not Mobicip.

    Turn on Find my iPhone after supervision is applied.

    Now to create your own profiles, use this:
    https://imazing.com/profile-editor

    I'l try to post ready made profiles soon.
    EDIT:
    Profile1:
    https://www.mediafire.com/file/xc8koua563t8qeg/profile1.mobileconfig/file
    *Contains FortiClient payload which means you just need to download forticlient for iOS and activate it using EMS.
    *Enforces Safe Surfer DNS which blocks porn, enforces safe search. Also, blocks images and videos on reddit and twitter. It works on all browsers including Safari.(You could edit the profile and use any DNS you want.)
    *Disables Find My app.
    *Prevents adding VPN connections whether those added manually or VPNs added by VPN apps.
    *Blocks many unsafe browsers including Tor browsers and many others.

    Edit the profile using any text editor according to your needs. You could use it to block any app you want but first you need to get the app's bundleID. Let's say you want to block Discord app.
    1-So open this site:https://offcornerdev.com/bundleid.html
    2-Search for Discord to get the bundleID which is com.hammerandchisel.discord
    3-Add this
    <string>com.hammerandchisel.discord</string>
    under blacklistedAppBundleIDs in the profile:
    <key>blacklistedAppBundleIDs</key>
    <array>
    <string>com.hammerandchisel.discord</string>

    Now, after you install the profile, Discord app will be blocked. You could do this with any apps that you want. Let's say you want to block Telegram app and use a filtered telegram app like Teleteens or Cloudveil messenger.

    So also add Telegram's bundleID under the blacklistedAppBundleIDs

    <string>ph.telegra.Telegraph</string>


    The password to remove the profile is: nofap. So before you install the profile, download it and edit it using notepad and change nofap to a random password and save it lockbox.pluckeye.net

    You could send the profile to your iOS device via airdrop or mail (also safari). If you use other apps to install the profile, it won't work.

  5. I think we have to start making a list of all dangerous apps..... and post it in the main thread...SO that users can choose from the list ... It is better that they choose only 17+ apps or 12+ apps and delete the other time wasting apps. I've just added Image blocker.. so I don't want any other browsers..

    I think so. I believe we won't need to block browsers, if we enforce a DNS. The problem is with enforcing DNS on devices running iOS 12,11 and 10.

    Do you mean "Limit Adult Content"? Who needs that, if we could enforce a DNS?
     
  9. Then VPN will be used...

    I think we could disable adding VPNs using supervised mode.

  11. Limit Adult content is already present in supervision options... its checked by default..

    Not with mobicip. You'll have to install a profile that does that.

  14. Guys, I didn't understand why DNS can be enforced in iOS 14+ but not in iOS 12+. Please explain or point to a website that knows how to do it. Should DNS be enforced in DNS Proxy in imazing ?

    DoH and TLS support was added on iOS 14. I have tried copying DNSCrypt's VPN profile but it didn't work because Always on VPN could be enabled on IKEV2 VPNs. The only way to do it is by using Algo VPN and hosting the VPN somewhere like Amazon EC2

    Why is the IP address for DNS in the profile you linked 35.227.226.142?

    Because it uses safesurfer DNS. I didn't any other DNS such as cleanbrowsing because I cannot customize them. This one blocks reddit and twitter images and videos. You could create your own account here:
    http://www.safesurfer.co.nz/
    then download a profile for iOS or macOS. You'll find that the IP address in the profile is 35.227.226.142
    I wanted to block more stuff like tiktok, for example but Safe Surfer updated their plans and unless you pay, all your settings would be ignored and only the default categories would be blocked. So I was left with that account.

    So now my iPhone is saying that I cannot install a Profile without an MDM enabled server? Thoughts?
