Set synchronization interval (Chrome OS)

You can configure the interval at which devices synchronize with Sophos Mobile.

Chrome devices, on which Sophos Mobile manages Sophos Chrome Security, synchronize as follows:

  • Server-initiated: At the interval you set in the Maximum interval between synchronizations compliance rule, the Sophos Mobile server sends a synchronization request to the device. If you don’t set a value, the interval is 24 hours.
  • Device-initiated: To make sure devices synchronize even if they don’t receive notifications, they also synchronize at the interval you set on the Google setup page.

To set the interval for device-initiated synchronization, do as follows:

  1. On the menu sidebar, under SETTINGS, select Setup > Google setup, and then select the Chrome OS tab.
  2. Under Sophos Chrome Security sync interval, select an interval from the Sync interval list.

    The default synchronization interval is sufficient in most cases. A shorter interval impacts the device’s battery life and data consumption and increases server load.

  3. Click Save.
