We pleased to announce the release of the latest version of 2X MDM (6.4.5) which has significantly enhanced iOS support. Administrators can now disable an iPhone’s camera, as well as prevent users from accessing the Safari browser and iTunes. We’re now using Microsoft’s Bing Maps, which are more intuitive and have added some great security features for Android. Users can now encrypt attached SD cards to a specific smartphone or tablet. By doing this, you can ensure any sensitive data stored on your SD card will remain safe, even if someone removes it before you’ve had a chance to remote wipe your device!

      Hi Milton, we are always trying to find a way on how to do this BUT Apple do NOT allow any app to do so. We are hoping that with version 7 of iOS we can find a way on how to do this if they will allow us to do so.

      Hi Adams,

      In the welcome email you should have instructions how to download the 2X MDM app on your device and an attached config file which when you open, automatically configures the 2X MDM client for use with your 2X MDM account.

      Should you require further support please send an email to support@2x.com
