⭐️Please note: Activation Lock for macOS Catalina is not currently enabled in Fleetsmith due to inconsistent Apple server responses.
Fleetsmith makes Activation Lock easy for Admins so you can streamline your workflow.
For DEP devices, Fleetsmith manages Activation Lock through the device’s lifecycle. Activation Lock will automatically be enabled by Fleetsmith as soon as the device is enrolled, and will automatically disable Activation Lock when the device is archived. This means admins won’t ever have to worry about dealing with a device stuck on the Activation Lock screen or needing the associated iCloud account username and password to unlock.
For non-DEP devices or manually enrolled devices, Fleetsmith will automatically attempt to escrow the Activation Lock Bypass Key upon enrollment and will attempt to disable Activation Lock upon archive. Unfortunately, Fleetsmith has no way to verify the success of the command on non-supervised devices. We recommend removing all associated AppleIDs from the device before re-provisioning to prevent activation lock from occurring on the device.
