How To Setup Mobicip On A Large Set Of iPods / iPads

Mobicip's web filter can be very effective for large deployments in schools, groups or enterprise settings. Follow these simple steps to setup a large set of devices protected using a single Mobicip.com account. Don't have an account? Create one here.

Step 1. Setup Filter Profile(s)

Create one or more user profiles, one for each group of devices that will share the same filtering settings. For instance, you may want to setup a profile for each classroom, team or sub-group within a classroom.

Filter profiles menu

  • For the filter profile you wish to edit, click the edit icon next to the restriction level.
  • Select the restriction option and save your selection.
  • Click on 'Add Profile' to setup additional profiles, say one per classroom or cohort of students.

Step 2. Deployment

Deploy Mobicip as a Global Proxy (on 'supervised' iOS devices only)

If your iOS devices are 'supervised' as defined by Apple, and you use an MDM or Apple's Profile Manager to manage them, you can deploy Mobicip's web filter as a global proxy.

  • You may then push the global proxy configuration profile to the designated cohort of iOS devices. For help with this step, contact your MDM vendor. 
  • Repeat the steps above to create and deploy a configuration for each Mobicip filter profile.

Voila! You will see that Mobicip is now filtering the Safari browser or any other browser on the iPad.
