Use Policy to turn off Find My
Updated over a week ago

Creating a policy to turn off Find My iCloud settings involves the use of Swifteam Mobile Device Management (MDM) software. Swifteam MDM allows organizations to remotely manage devices and enforce policies that are required for the security and compliance of the devices being used by their employees.

Here's a step-by-step process to create a policy to turn off Find My iCloud settings:

  1. Create a new Find My policy

  2. Name the Find My policy for an easy-to-remember name

  3. Check the box to disable Find My

  4. Select the Mac devices you want to apply the policy to. You can also create a device group in the next step. Continue to finish the setup.

  5. After creation, you can view the details by clicking the policy row.

  6. Note, when enabling both settings (Disable Find My iCloud settings & Sending notifications to disable Find My), sending notifications to disable Find My will have a higher priority. Swifteam will send a notification to device owner to turn off Find My on the Mac app first before deploying the policy to disable Find My.

    Only after the device owner has disabled Find My on their devices, we will only deploy the policy to disable Find My. We don't want to disable find my settings before the device owner disable Find my.

    This is before disabling Find My settings.

    This is after disabling Find My settings. You can see the Find My setting is On and won't be able to change it if we disable the Find My settings before it turns off.
