How to remove Qustodio's "AlwaysOn" VPN profile using AppleConfigurator


If you used the AppleConfigurator on a Mac computer to install Qustodio's VPN onto your child's device following a procedure we refer as "AlwaysOn", you will need to use the AppleConfigurator again to remove the profile and restore the iOS device to its previous state.


Please note that this procedure will delete all information and content on the device, because of this we strongly recommend to make a copy all the files you want to keep.

AppleConfigurator 1 or 2

Depending on your country, you might have used AppleConfigurator 1 or AppleConfigurator 2. Each version has different steps to uninstall Qustodio, so you will need to check which Configurator you've used before starting to uninstall.


Once you've confirmed the version, please follow these steps, depending on which version of AppleConfigurator you need to use:
