Prevent users from connecting to other Wi-Fi Networks on iOS

Is there a way to block users from connecting their iPads to Wi-Fi networks other than the ones setup with MDM?

    Hey Edwin,

    Definitely! Initially, you’ve to enroll the iPads by signing into your Hexnode MDM portal.
    ios-Adv-Restriction

    1. Navigate to Policies tab.

    2. Go ahead with an existing Wi-Fi configuration Policy (Or if you create a new policy, make sure that you configure Wi-Fi settings before proceeding to the next step.)

    3. Select iOS Settings > Advanced Restrictions
    Note: The Advanced Restrictions are available only for Supervised iOS devices.

    4. Check the option Connect to MDM-configured Wi-Fi networks only under Allow Device Functionality.
    Note: This option is available only for Supervised iOS devices running v10.3 and above.

    5. Go to Policy Targets > Add the devices to which this policy needs to be associated > Save the Policy.

    Enabling this option will block users from connecting to user-configured networks. Meanwhile, the devices will automatically be connected to the MDM-configured Wi-Fi Network.

    Cheers!
