App Protection configuration (Android Enterprise device policy)

With the App Protection configuration you define password requirements for protecting managed Google Play apps.

With App Protection in use, users must create 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 Sophos Central Self Service portal.
