Configure Settings for Android Policies

You can create and apply policies to enforce specific behavior on the Android devices you manage. For example, you can create a policy that requires users to enter a device passcode and a work profile device passcode that controls access to corporate applications and data in an Android work profile.


JumpCloud supports these Android policies. You can create these policies and apply them to your Android devices and device groups. If a policy contains fields that require additional configuration, click the link in the Learn More column.


JumpCloud will continue to add additional policies, settings, and values to existing policies, and support for other enrollment types which might leverage these settings slightly differently. Modifying existing policies and resaving them might be necessary to apply the updated payload.
