Lock device

You can lock a device that is managed by Sophos Mobile Control. This activates the screen lock.
  1. On the menu sidebar, under MANAGE, click Devices.
  2. On the Devices page, click the blue triangle next to the device that you want to lock or unlock and then click Show.
  3. On the Show device page, click Actions > Lock.

A task to activate the lock screen is created and transferred to the device. Users must enter their device password (or their PIN or pattern, if configured) to unlock the device.

You can display the task status on the Task view page.
