How to install "unreliable" third-party shortcuts on iOS 13 and iPadOS

IPhone shortcuts

Shortcuts is an iOS and iPadOS application that allows us automate tasks, making our day a little more productive. We have a large gallery of shortcuts within the App, but we can also create our own or download it from the internet.

If we download a third-party shortcut that we have found on the internet, our device may pose problems to install when cataloging it as ?Unreliable shortcut?. In this case we must activate the installation of this type of shortcuts on our device. Then we explain how to do it.

Activate the option "Allow unreliable shortcuts" on your device

Activating this option on our iPhone or iPad is very simple and for this we will follow the following steps:

  1. We open "Settings."
  2. We slide the menu down until we find the settings of the "Shortcuts" application.
  3. Once inside we will activate the option ?Allow unreliable shortcuts? using its switch.
  4. We will get a confirmation screen, click on "Allow" and then ask us for the unlock code of our terminal.
  5. Enter the unlock code to complete the activation.

What do I do if there is no option to "Allow unreliable shortcuts" on my iPhone or iPad

If the option "Allow unreliable shortcuts" does not appear on your device, do not worry, just do the following steps:

  1. Open the Shortcuts application on your device.
  2. Once opened we go to the galley and install a shortcut any of those that appear.
  3. When we have installed it we go to "My shortcuts" and click on it to execute it.
  4. Once it has finished executing, we return to the ?Settings? application and repeat the steps described above to activate the option ?Allow unreliable shortcuts?.
  5. We already see the switch to activate it.

As you can see it is very easy to be able to install third-party shortcuts on your device, thus expanding the catalog we have in the application gallery and saving us from having to make our own shortcut for some functions we need.
