How to block the user from installing apps on a deviceSolved

4 years ago

I have given many Android tablets to my students. But I wanted to prevent them from installing other unwanted apps. Any possibility using Hexnode?

Hey, Thanks for reaching out to us.

Yes, you can block app installation via Hexnode. Please navigate to Policies-> Android-> Advanced Restrictions-> Allow App Settings and uncheck the option ‘Install apps’. Associate targets and save the policy. Please note that the feature is supported only on Samsung Knox and Android Enterprise enrolled devices.

For more help, check out the help doc on restrictions for Android devices.
