App Protection configuration (Android for Work policy)

With the App Protection configuration you define password requirements for protecting work apps, i.e. the apps that are installed in the work profile.

With App Protection in use, users must define a password when they start a protected app for the first time. After a failed login attempt a login delay is imposed.

If App Protection is active on a device, the command Reset App Protection password is available in the Actions menu of the Show device page. The user can also reset the App Protection password in the Self Service Portal.

Grace period in minutes After the grace period has expired, protected apps can only be unlocked by entering a password.
