Hi, Kalia.

We understand your concern but there is only so much MDMs can do when it comes to core user privacy features. Android, iOS, or Windows does not allow remote password set up. Same is the case for forcing password configuration during the initial set up. However, devices with no password will be deemed non-compliant within Hexnode MDM. So, you can create a dynamic group for non-compliant devices and assign policies to trigger remedial actions like disenrollment or device wipe.

As for the Application blacklisting, you can not just detect non-compliance, but you can actually disable the apps if your device falls into any of these categories.

  1. Supervised iOS devices
  2. Samsung SAFE devices
  3. LG Gate devices

On generic devices, you can turn on Kiosk mode to lock down the device to a single app or a handful of apps of your choice. Check out this guide on Kiosk mode

Thanks and regards
