    My friend and I were iMessaging. He was on his school iPad and I was on my phone. His school has a couple profiles on the device. Are there any technologies / profiles in which the school can monitor iMessages ? He wasn't on school wifi either.

    I'm not sure, but you should ALWAYS assume that devices belonging to an institution are monitored and that all associated communications are NOT private.

    And let me add this, if you don't mind.

    Anything you send in a message or put online could come back to haunt you some day. Rule of thumb: If you wouldn't want your mother to read it, think before you "write" it.

    Better... Never put anything in an email or text message you wouldn't want to explain to a jury from a witness box...

    It wasn't anything bad, just a question from the inner tech nerd in me.

    The answer is "probably". I would treat it as if the administrator was standing over my shoulder as I typed.

    How would a network admin do this ?

    More than likely, they would use some type of pre-installed monitoring software.

    I'm surprised iMessages is even enabled on a institutional device ...

    They have apps for that. But the device being monitored needs the app to work. The old hidden app trick.
