Mobile Device Management (MDM) is a convenient way for companies, schools, and various institutions to monitor devices that are used for various business activities.
One such MDM solution is Microsoft Intune. This service gives administrators and IT departments unequaled access to the devices employees or students use daily.
But if you leave that company or school and find that your device is still connected to MDM program, you may be unable to fully use the device.
You can request the IT department to remove the profile from the device, particularly if you were on the BYOD program.
But you may find that you need to find your own solutions if you have no way of communicating with the department.
Here we will show you all the options you have when attempting to remove Microsoft Intune from your iPhone.
Let’s start with what Microsoft Intune is and how it works.
What is Microsoft Intune?
Microsoft Intune is an MDM solution that can allow an IT department to control and manage each iOS device that the employees on the company use.
It is part of the Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS) a platform that can be used to manage mobile devices and the apps installed on them.
Intune is particularly useful because it can seamlessly integrate with several other components of the EMS platform including the Azure Active Directory and Azure Information Protection. It can monitor on-premises email and Office 365.

Step 2: Download the Unlockit app on your computer. You can download it by clicking the following button.

Step 4: Run Unlockit on your computer and you should see the various options. Choose choose “Bypass MDM Lock” from the main screen.
Step 5: Click “Start” and wait for the device to restart. When it does, you can reconnect it to Wi-Fi and continue activating it.
If iTunes is unable to detect the device or it says that it is “Supervised by another computer,” try the following:
Step 1: Open iTunes and then restore the device in DFU mode. You need to have a valid SIM card installed on the device during the restore and activation process.
Step 2: Use iTunes to activate the device and choose “Set Up as New iPhone” when you see the “Welcome to your new iPhone Message.”
Step 3: Once the restore process is complete, click on the “Start” button.
Step 4: Connect the device to a Wi-Fi network and complete the activation process.
Remove Microsoft Intune from the Company Portal
If you can sign in to the company portal, you can easily remove the device from the Intune MDM profile in a few simple steps. Here’s how to do it:
Step 1: Sign in to the Intune Company Portal app and choose “Devices.”
Step 2: Choose the device that you would like to remove from the list of devices that appear. If there is only one device it will be automatically selected.
Step 3: Tap on the three dots next to “Rename” and choose “Remove Device.” Tap “Remove” again to confirm and the device will be removed from the profile.
Remove Data Collected by Intune Company Portal
If you want to remove any data that may have been collected by the Company portal app, you can do by resetting the device. To do that, go to Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings.
The information logs such as how long the app was open or if it crashed, is automatically erased when you remove a device from the Company Portal.
The process you use to remove Intune MDM configuration from your iPhone depends on whether or not you have access to the admin account used to monitor the device.
You most probably won’t which is why Unlockit is probably your best option in this case since you can use it without needing a password.
