    Hey, Thanks for reaching out to us.

    I’m afraid that the GPS can be enforced only on Samsung Knox, LG GATE and Kyocera business phones.
    To force the GPS on the above listed devices, please navigate to Android-> Advanced Restrictions-> Allow location settings. You will be able to find the below options:
    GPS: Allow users to turn GPS on/off.
    Force GPS to fetch location: Force GPS to be always ON. Users won’t be able to turn it OFF.
    Please enable the above options in the policy to force the GPS on the target devices.

    Kindly use the help link for insights into restrictions for Android devices.
