    Hey, Thanks for posting. Happy to help.

    Yes, you can. Please navigate to Android > Mobile Data Management > Data Usage Restrictions. You will be able to see the restrictions to block Wi-Fi/Mobile data or all the network connections. Choose the option based on your requirement. You can also set the data limit upon reaching which the user can be notified and blocked from accessing the data.
    If the user should be restricted from accessing the Wi-Fi at all, the limit can be set to 0 MB.
    The data tracking can be reset by configuring the ‘Reset Data Tracking’ option. It can be reset daily or monthly at the specific time configured through the policy.
