Lock protected apps


This section only applies to Android devices.

If your organization has configured App Protection for specific apps on your device, you must create a password when you open a protected app for the first time. You need to enter the password every time you open the app or after your device has been locked.

In the Sophos Mobile Control app, you can view the protected apps and lock all of them at once. This is useful, for example, if you want to hand over your device to somebody else, to prevent them from using your protected apps.

  1. On the dashboard of the Sophos Mobile Control app, tap App Protection.

    Under Password-protected apps, you see all apps that your organization has configured as protected.

  2. Tap Lock protected apps.

To reset the password, see Reset App Protection password.
