Block USB and bluetooth tethering.

expand collapsive

Good day Guys!
My organization have 1000 android phones distributed among my clients. But due to some security reasons, I need to prevent tethering from these devices. USB especially, and if possible bluetooth too.
Thanking in Advance.

    Hey, Thanks for reaching out to us.

    Please navigate to Android->Restrictions->Allow Network Settings.
    Disable the option ‘Tethering’ to block the users from turning on tethering on their devices. This will disable the blue tooth and USB tethering along with the Portable Wi-Fi hotspot.
    To disable the USB and bluetooth tethering alone, disable the ‘USB tethering’ and ‘Bluetooth tethering’ options.

    Kindly use the help link for more info on restrictions on iOS devices.
