How To Setup Mobicip in Child Mode on iPhone or iPad?


This article shows you how to setup Mobicip on a child's iOS device (iPhone or iPad).

Summary: Download Mobicip app from the app store, select Child as the primary user and follow prompts to install Mobicip MDM.

Before you Begin

Using the Mobicip app on your child's device, you can 

  • Set up Mobicip parental controls and assign the filtering settings you customized for your child who will primarily use the device 
  • Install Mobicip MDM profile to monitor all activities on the device 
  • While you will be able to purchase a Mobicip subscription, we recommend using the parent device to purchase the subscription and set up your account. This is to prevent the subscription from being tied to your child's iTunes account in case they have a separate account and also from possible cancellation of the subscription in the Settings app. 

Please note that 

  • Mobicip Parental Controls work by installing the Mobicip app on your Child's device. Monitoring won't start until the Mobicip MDM profile is installed on your child's device. If you would like to get the full capabilities of the Mobicip Parental Controls on your child's iOS device, please set up your child's device in "Supervise" mode. 
  • You need to have access to your children's device so that you can install Mobicip on their device and begin monitoring. Please ensure adding each of your children separately while setting up the Parent app so you can monitor their activities accurately.
  • Once the Mobicip MDM profile is installed, deleting the Mobicip app on your child's device won't impact the monitoring. You will need the app only when the device is passed on to another child in the family and you need to change the primary child user of the device.  
  • Please refer to this article on how to set up notifications and if you have questions about your child uninstalling the app.
