Hey, Thanks for reaching out to us.

You will be able to enforce Location Tracking using Hexnode MDM.

To enforce Location tracking:

  1. Login to the portal and navigate to Policies-> Android-> Restrictions-> Allow Location Settings. 
  2. Enable the options ‘GPS’ and ‘Force GPS to fetch location’.
  3. Navigate to General Settings-> Location Tracking in the same policy and click Configure.
  4. Check the option ‘Enable Location Tracking’ and select the Location Update Interval.
  5. Associate targets and save the policy.

Please note that location services can be enforced only on Samsung Knox, LG GATE and Kyocera business phones.

Kindly look into our help doc on Location Tracking for more info.
