Locking Down/ Forcing NextDNS on IOS

It might be me, but it seems super easy to get around NextDNS on iOS by simply changing the VPN setting. Even if the app is installed it simply allows for me to change the VPN from NextDNS to Automatic and I am able to browse sites are I know are blocked when NextDNS is enabled. Any assistance on this would be appreciated.

  • Tried Block Bypass and it doesn't do anything. That setting is for items such as VPN workarounds or other apps that would bypass the VPN. In this case, all I have to do is go to Settings>General>VPN & Network> switch to Automatic. Once that is done, I can browse to anything that is set to be blocked. I would think this would be something that would force the VPN to the NextDNS (Especially with the app installed), instead of it just allowing me to change that setting and get around NextDNS. 

    If it is just me, then I would appreciate any actual help to ensure that this isn't that easy to get around. 

  • Ultimately, if a user has admin access to whatever device (phone, computer, etc) then there's no real way to stop them from bypassing whatever DNS settings you have set.
