Unenroll Jamf for macOS

It is not currently possible to remove Jamf from macOS devices which have been enrolled with Automated Device Enrollment (ADE) without first escalating the issue with IT.

Please follow the instructions below to verify ADE enrollment.

Before You Begin

macOS 12 and Below: Prior to unenrolling your device go to "System Preference > Profiles > Stanford Device Management" and compare with the screenshot below

macOS 13 and Above: Prior to unenrolling your device go to "System Settings > Privacy and Security > Profiles  > Stanford Device Management" and compare with the screenshot below

Minus button is greyed out
"This Mac is supervised and managed by Stanford University."

If your settings window matches the two requirements above, please stop what you're doing and contact your local help desk.

Failure to do so and proceeding through the steps below will put your device in an unfixable state requiring a reinstallation of macOS to regain compliance.
