How to remove a VPN profile on a MDM enrolled macOS

Restoring from a Time Machine backup can create duplicate MDM VPN profiles.

To manually remove a profile on your macOS, follow these steps:

  • Go to System Preferences and select Profiles.
  • Delete the VPN profile, and enter the user password if requested.
  • Then, go to Network Connections.
  • If you see any connections which start with or include “VPN”, delete them.
