What your admin can do with Android Device Policy

Your admin can set the following security policies:

  • Device password strength and required length
  • Number for the following items:
    • Invalid passwords allowed before the device is wiped
    • Recently expired passwords that are blocked
    • Days before a device password expires
    • Idle minutes before a device automatically locks
    • Days device has not synced before wiping
  • Application auditing
  • Remotely wipe a company-owned device 
  • Blocking of security-compromised devices

Your admin can also configure Wi-Fi networks and manage network access certificates. They might choose to hide a network's details so that only users who have the network name and password can connect to it.

Where to find the device policy app 

Android Device Policy doesn’t have an app icon. If needed, you can access the app in your device settings at Settings and then Google and then Device Policy.
