Hey cheryl_2,

Thank you for reaching out to us!

Hexnode provides you with the option to prevent users from sharing the internet from their Android devices. You can log into your Hexnode portal and navigate to Policies -> New Policy -> Android -> Advanced Restrictions -> Allow Connectivity Options and disable the option “Configure Hotspot and Tethering” to prevent users from configuring tethering and portable hotspots from their Android devices. You can also disable internet sharing from Policies -> Android -> Restrictions by disabling the Tethering option.

For this feature to work, you need to have a device running Samsung Knox 1.0+, or the devices have to be enrolled in Android Enterprise as Device Owner.

Hope this answers your query.
