Child turns off VPN to bypass Norton app supervisions

On the iPhone 8, when a VPN is being used, an on/off switch appears in Settings. My son has figured out that if he turns it off, he has access to his apps because Norton Family is not functional. Is there a way to keep him from turning it off?

Re: Child turns off VPN to bypass Norton app supervisions

Hi @jsample68,

Welcome to Norton Community.

iOS platform’s limitations restrict apps from controlling the VPN Settings toggle switch. We are exploring possible options to control the toggle switch or report this as a tamper activity to parents.

However, the VPN will be re-enabled, once the Norton Family app is launched.

Thanks and Regards,
Andrew.
