Lock protected apps

Note This section only applies to Android devices.

If your company 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. Afterward the app is password-protected. 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.

Note You can reset the password using the Self Service Portal.
  1. On the dashboard of the Sophos Mobile Control app, tap App Protection.
    Under Protected Apps all apps your company has configured as protected are shown.
  2. Tap Lock listed apps.
