      Hey, Thanks for posting the query.

      Yes, you can.

      • Please navigate to Android–>Password.
      • You will have the option to configure the device or work profile password rule.
      • Choose the option based on your enrollment method and click ‘Configure’.
      • At the bottom will be the option to set the number of failed attempts after which the device is to be wiped.
      • If the device is enrolled using the Profile Owner enrollment method, only the work container will be wiped.
        Please note to associate targets and save the policy.

      Please use the help link for further insights into the Password policy.

      Cheers!

      Hey, Thanks for reaching out to us.

      Yes, it can be done. Please navigate to iOS–>Passcode. You will be able to configure the passcode rule for the iOS device. There will be multiple fields to fill. At the bottom will be the option to set the number of failed attempts after which the device is to be wiped. When the wrong password is entered for a specified number of times, the device will get wiped automatically.

      Kindly use the help link for password policy on iOS.

      Cheers!
