With more and more children spending a lot of time online, there is an increased need for parental control Apps like OurPact.
These apps give the parent immense control over how their child uses the device, even giving them the ability to track the type of data they interact with.
But OurPact can be restrictive to the user of the device, particularly if you somehow end up purchasing a second-hand device that still has an OurPact profile connected to it.
This can raise questions of just how much privacy you have when using the device and you may therefore and understandably want to remove the OurPact Profile from the device.
In this article, we will show you the ways that you can get rid of OurPact on your iPhone, even if you don't know the PIN the owner used to create and configure the profile.
OurPact is a parental control app that was originally launched in 2015, although it did go through a period where Apple had removed it from the App Store.
It offers a wide range of pretty advanced features aimed at controlling iOS devices. With the premium version, one person can control and monitor up to 20 devices.
The main function of OurPact is that it can be used to block some content or apps from being used on the device.
This means that if OurPact is installed on the device, you may find that you are unable to use various apps, features, and services on the iPhone, something that can be very restrictive.
OurPact gives the profile installer unprecedented control over the device and therefore must be removed if you are going to have full access to the device.
If you are not the one who set up the OurPact MDM profile, you will not have the PIN required to remove it or at least lift the restrictions associated with it.
But this doesn't mean that you will be completely unable to remove it.
There are certain third-party applications that can help you remove OurPact profiles and lift all restrictions associated with the device.
One such tool is Unlockit iPhone MDM bypass tool. This tool is useful in this instance because it can be used to remove MDM profiles like OurPact from any iOS device even if you don't have the admin password associated with the profile.
The MDM profile will be removed from your device permanently and all restrictions lifted until you reset the device, in which case you will need to use Unlockit again to remove the profile.
Once the MDM profile has been removed, you will be able to access all features of the device.
Here's how you can use Unlockit to remove the OurPact MDM profile on your device;
Step 1: Unlockit is a desktop application. So, the first thing you need to do is install the app on your computer.
Step 2: Open it after installation and in the options that appear on the screen, choose "Bypass MDM Lock."
Step 3: Connect the iPhone to the computer and turn off "Find my iPhone."
Step 4: Go back to the Unlockit and click "Start."
In a few minutes, the MDM profile will be removed from the device and you can continue to use it without any restrictions.
When the device restarts, tap on "Don't Transfer Apps & Data" in the "Apps & Data" section.
The following are the main advantages of choosing to use Unlockit;
If you are the one who set up the OurPact MDM profile of you have access to the password that was used to create the profile, you can easily remove it in of two ways;
Step 1: Open OurPact connect on your computer. If you don't have it, you can go to https://app.ourpact.com/connect/ to reinstall it.
Step 2: Select "Remove & iOS" and then click "Start.
Step 3: Then just follow the instructions that appear on the screen to complete the process.
Step 1: Go to Settings > General > Device Management/Profiles > Device System Profiles.
Step 2: Tap on "Remove Management" for the OurPact profile and then enter the passcode when prompted.
If the device was paired with Connect and the parent selected 'yes' for tamperproofing, you will be unable to remove management from the device Settings.
Whenever you are dealing with restrictive MDM profiles and you find that you don't have the passcode to remove it manually, a tool like Unlockit can prove very useful.
It is easy to use; you can remove the profile even if you've never done it before and it is effective enough to allow you complete access to the device once the profile has been removed.
