Disable share Notes on Notes.app

New Contributor III

Hello 🙂

Students chat with the Notes app. They share their note. Do you know if it is possible to turn off note sharing?

Thanks for your help.

My understanding is that you must have an iCloud account to share notes, which means you should be able to create a configuration profile that disallows Notes being stored in iCloud. To do this you can set up a Permissions configuraton profile, and then uncheck "Allow iCloud Notes" under the Functionality tab. You may also want to disable AirDrop/other sharing services at the same time should they decide to start doing that instead.

Hello nashenbrenner, thanks a lot, it's exactly what i'm looking for. I actually don't find the line "Allow icloud Notes". Could you help me ? 

I use Jamf PRO and i look in : devices / configuration profile / new / restrictions / fonctionnality - it's the good path ? 



Yes, that's the path I'm finding it under. If on-prem is your server up to date with the latest Jamf install (10.33)?

Too bad for me.. this rule is for computers, not for devices.. and i don't find the same line for iPad.. thanks anyway 🙂
