data restriction in ios

expand collapsive

Is there a way I could set a limit or keep up with a device’s data usage on all apps not just managed? It seems possible on android but not iOS, am I correct?

    Hey, Thanks for reaching out.

    You can set device data usage restrictions and App-wise restrictions on Android devices using Hexnode.
    In iOS devices, you can restrict the cellular data usage and data usage on roaming for the managed apps. Managed apps are applications deployed to the devices via Hexnode.

    Please follow the below steps for configuring the network usage rules on iOS devices:

    • Navigate to iOS-> Expense Management-> Network Usage Rules. Click Configure.
    • Click on the +New network usage rule.
    • The following Configuration Settings options can be seen:
      Cellular Data Usage: Disable to restrict mobile data usage by the managed apps.
      Data usage on Roaming: Disable to restrict mobile data usage while roaming by the managed apps.
    • Select the desired apps from the configuration window.
    • Save the policy.

    Kindly use the help link to learn more about iOS network usage rules.

    Cheers!
