Mobile Device Management, or MDM for short, is a tool that allows its members to have remote management over all mobile devices enrolled in their MDM programs.

This is usually utilized by companies, schools, and many others to better manage and control the devices being handed to and used by their members.

MDM comes in different profiles provided by their respective systems. One of these systems is the Lightspeed system. The Lightspeed MDM is commonly used for devices provided by a school to its students.

This article will focus on how to remove Lightspeed MDM through a few simple methods.

Without further delay, let’s begin.

What is Lightspeed MDM?

Lightspeed MDM, as mentioned earlier, is a type of MDM provided by the Lightspeed system that is used for academic purposes.

Its cloud-based technology allows multiple devices to connect to a central Apple School Manager. This makes it easier for teachers to manage the devices of their students.

With Lightspeed MDM, you can enjoy unlimited books and access lots of information through the Apple School Manager.

However, the MDM also allows teachers to configure the settings on those devices. Consequently, they can limit the accessible features to only those that can be used solely for schoolwork and studies.

Remove Lightspeed MDM from Lightspeed Management Dashboard

If you happen to have admin access, or in this case, a Lightspeed manager account, removing the MDM profile on your device will be a lot easier.

However, getting your hands on a manager account would mean that you got permission from the higher-ups, which is pretty hard to do.

Before proceeding with this method, you should check what MDM profile you are enrolled under.

You will need this information later on, so go ahead and check it by accessing Device Management in your Settings.

Once you have the needed information, follow these steps to use your Lightspeed manager account to remove the MDM from your device:

  1. First, head to Lightspeed's website.
  2. Log in using the Lightspeed manager account to access the Lightspeed Management Dashboard.
  3. Next, select Mobile Manager.
  4. After that, navigate through the list and find your school name or MDM profile. Click on it and an interface will appear.
  5. Now, click on the MDM profile you are enrolled under. This is the information you previously searched for.
  6. After that, scroll through the menu on the left-hand side and select Devices.
  7. Find and select your device. If you don’t know the name of your device, you can check it through the Settings > General > About > Name.
  8. Next, click on Options found on the upper right-hand side and select “Remove from this group”.
  9. Finally, a confirmation window should appear. Click on OK.

After following all these steps, your device should now be removed from the list of devices that are under the monitoring of the school. Congratulations! You can now use your device freely.

Conclusion

Lightspeed MDM is pretty useful for managing school-provided devices, though it prevents access to a lot of the devices’ features.

This makes them practically unusable when it comes to things not related to studies. There are a lot of ways to remove it, as the general method of removing MDM profiles wherein only the password is needed.

If you don’t have the password, you can always use external software such as Unlockit, which is easy to use and reliable.

You can also make use of a Lightspeed Manager Account to remove the MDM profile. If you have any comments, questions, or suggestions, please feel free to comment down below.
