As companies seek to keep company data from unauthorized individuals, they constantly look for simple ways to view and manage all company-owned devices on the same admin console.
One such tool is AirWatch Mobile Device Management, a service that allows a company to enroll all devices to the service and control their mobility from the same place.
But you happen to purchase a device with AirWatch on it or you choose to take your company-owned device with you when you leave your current employment, you may find it hard to use the device.
In this guide, we will show you how you can remove the restrictions that AirWatch can impose on the iPhone and get your device working normally.
AirWatch Mobile Device Management is a service that allows companies to manage numerous devices on a central administrative console.
This can give the company that owns the device a lot of power over the device including the ability to control and supervise the data used on the device, monitor how the device is used, and even remotely erase or update the device.
From a company's perspective, AirWatch is a very beneficial solution as it allows for the easy access of company information even from hundreds of devices.
But the configuration that it presents can make it very difficult for the ordinary person to use the device if they don't want to be monitored by the company that used to own it.
Therefore, there may be a need to remove this configuration. Keep reading to find out how.
If you are not the administrator and therefore don't have the login information you would need to remove the AirWatch configuration from the iOS device, you can get help from an MDM bypasser tool designed for this purpose.
One such solution is Unlockit iPhone, which is an professional iPhone MDM bypass software that is designed to remove AirWatch from iOS devices without password.
One of the main benefits of choosing Unlockit is that it is very easy to use. You can easily remove AirWatch in a matter of minutes.

Step 1. Download and install the software on your computer.
Step 2. Then, launch the software and start the process by clicking on the Bypass MDM Lock button.
Step 3. Connect the iPhone with the PC by using the lightning cable. Click on Trust on your iPhone when the prompt to Trust the device shows up.

One of the other ways to remove AirWatch from your device is through Settings App on your device.
But you will be requested to enter the passcode to remove the MDM profile from the device, which is used by the the administrator in company when creating the profile.
If you have access to the passcode, you can use these simple steps to use it to remove the MDM configuration from the device:
Step 1: Go to the Settings on your iOS device and then tap on "General." Look for the "VPN & Device Management" option and tap on it.
If you are not able to see the settings on the new device, they will only be accessible under the "General Settings" after installing the MDM profile application.
Step 2: You should see all the profiles that are associated with the device under "Mobile Device Management". Tap on the MDM profile that you would like to remove.
Step 3: Once you are certain that this is the profile to remove, click on "Remove Management."
Step 4: You will then be prompted to enter the passcode that was used to create the profile.
Enter the passcode and then click "Remove Management" and the MDM profile will be removed from the device. You can then continue to use the device normally.
MDM Profiles like the one provided by AirWatch can be very restrictive and when you don't know the PIN used to create the profile in the first place, almost impossible to remove.
But as we have seen Unlockit iPhone can help even if you don't have the initial PIN.
