Note This feature requires a license of type Mobile Advanced.
You can use the scan results of the Sophos Mobile Security app to create a list of allowed apps.

  2. Click the blue triangle next to the device whose scan results you want to use, and then click Edit.
  3. Go to the Scan results tab.
    The non-clean packages are shown in a table. The Threat name column indicates whether the displayed package is a low reputation app, a PUA or malware. You can click the links to display further information on the relevant threat from SophosLabs.

    Detected low reputation apps and PUAs have a blue check mark icon to the left of the package name. Only these apps can be added to the allowed apps list.

  4. Click the blue check mark icon to add the app to the allowed apps list.
  5. In the dialog box, click Yes to confirm the operation.
    The app is added to the allowed apps list.
  6. Repeat this step for all apps you want to add.
  7. To view the list, go to Settings and click General.
  8. Click Show allow list.

    All apps you added are displayed. Apps on this list will be allowed to start on all managed devices. The apps are not reported anymore.

    When you click Clear allow list, all entries in the list are deleted.
