Restricting Messaging on iPhone

Hey! My employees spend a huge amount of time on their work phones for messaging and that irritates me like anything! It really decreases the overall team efficiency. How can I stop this?!

    Hi there, @Biyu! Thank you for reaching out to us!

    You can do this by whitelisting only the required work applications or blacklisting the existing messaging apps to prevent users from accessing them. This can be accomplished by clicking on the Policies tab and then navigating through iOS > App Management > Blacklist/Whitelist. You can add the necessary apps by clicking on the +Add button.
    In case of a blacklist policy, to eliminate the chance of users installing other messenger apps, you can disable the Install app from App Store feature in Advanced Restrictions.


    Blacklisting a third-party messaging app


    Hope that answers your query.
