What is an MDM profile and what does it do?

MDM stands for ‘Mobile Device Management’. An MDM profile can change and control system settings on a mobile device that uses Apple’s iOS operating system.


Habyts installs its own MDM profile when it is installed, granting it permission to hide or block certain existing apps from the user and prevent the installation of new apps.


You can manually uninstall Habyts’ MDM profile from an Apple iOS device.


Note: If you uninstall the MDM profile, the Habyts app is no longer able to control screen time on the device.


To uninstall:

  1. Go to ‘Settings > General > Profiles and Device Management’.
  2. Tap on the ‘Habyts management profile’ and tap ‘Remove management’.
  3. Enter the device passcode when prompted.
  4. Tap ‘Remove Management’ again.


The profile is removed.
