Passcode Policy

Passcode Policy allows you to create and enforce the passcode settings from MobiLock Dashboard. This enables you to make sure that all your employees are forced to set a passcode on device thereby preventing accidental data loss.

In this tutorial we will learn on how to Create and Apply a Passcode Policy to iOS devices.

Please watch the video below to get a visual walkthrough.

Creating a Passcode Policy

  1. Log-In to your MobiLock Dashboard.
  2. Navigate to Enterprise > Passcode Policy.
  3. Enable Require Passcode.
  4. Choose the type of passcode that you want to enforce, that is either Numeric or Alphanumeric.
  5. Select the length of the passcode. On iOS this needs to be a minimum of 6.
  6. Enable Enforce Complex Passcode if you want to enforce a complex passcode.
  7. If you had selected the passcode type to be alphanumeric then you can set the additional constraints,
    1. Minimum Symbols
    2. Minimum Alphabets
    3. Minimum Numbers
  8. Once you are done, click SAVE.

Applying a Passcode Policy

  1. Navigate to Enterprise > Passcode Policy.
  2. To apply the created Passcode policy, click on APPLY button.
  3. Choose the Device Profiles where you want to apply this to. Note - You can publish onto individual iOS devices.
  4. Click on SUBMIT.
  5. The device(s) associated with the Device Profiles where you have published this policy will show a dialog to set the passcode.
By default iOS gives a grace period of 60 minutes. MobiLock Pro currently does not offer a way to control this. Unless the grace period is complete, the passcode dialog is not show unless user opens and minimises the Settings app on device.

Removing the Passcode from Devices

  1. Navigate to Enterprise > Passcode Policy.
  2. Click on REMOVE button.
  3. Select the Device Profiles where you want to remove the passcode policy from and click SUBMIT.
  4. MobiLock will not enforce the passcode policy on the device and will also attempt to remove the passcode from the device.
