iPad: FindmyiPad, Privacy settings

There are several privacy settings that MUST be set on your school iPad – and several that are your call, but that the iPad guy recommends [unless you LIKE advertisers to know too much about you].


 

Call up Settings –> Privacy –> Location ServicesLocation services

  • Location Services MUST be turned ON
  • Meraki MDM must be set to “Always” – click on it and you’ll see the setting
  • The other App settings are up to you. You are deciding whether to allow the app to know your location. Personally, I leave them turned off unless there’s a real good reason to leave them on.
Meraki MDM ON is MANDATORY

At the bottom, click on System Services

Settings–>Privacy–>Location Services–>System Services
  • MANDATORY –> Leave Find My iPad turned ON
  • Everything else is up to you.
  • The iPad Guy recommends leaving Setting Time Zone and Wi-Fi Networking on, and leaving everything else off.
  • ESPECIALLY leave the sliders in the “Product Improvement ” section turned off.

 

At the bottom of  the screen [Settings–>Privacy–>Location Services–>System Services] you should see a slider for Status Bar Icon. This puts a little arrow at the top of the screen anytime an app requests your location. It’s nice to know if you are interesting in knowing.
