How to Remove Password from a Device using Hexnode MDM?

Consider a case where an employee leaves your organization without clearing the password from the corporate device assigned to that user and forgets to let the admin know about the password on the device. In such a case, the password can be cleared from the Hexnode MDM console. A password also includes a PIN or a pattern used to unlock the screen.


  • Supported on iOS and Android devices.
  • For Android 7.0+ devices, enroll them in Android Enterprise with Hexnode for Work app v7.6.9+. Activate the password token in the Hexnode for Work app once for the action to work.
