You can define these policy settings only for Android devices.

To protect corporate data in case a mobile device is lost or stolen, you must configure the unauthorized access protection.

To ensure protection of stolen or lost device data, Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Android must be set as an Accessibility feature. Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Android prompts the user to set the app as an Accessibility feature through the Initial Configuration Wizard. The user can skip this step or disable this service in the device settings at a later time.

To configure protection of stolen or lost device data:

  1. Open the policy properties window:
    • In the main window of Kaspersky Security Center Web Console or Cloud Console, select Devices > Policies & profiles. In the list of group policies that opens, click the name of the policy that you want to configure.
    • In the main window of Kaspersky Security Center Web Console or Cloud Console, select Devices > Mobile > Devices. Click the mobile device that falls under the policy that you want to configure, and then select the policy on the Active policies and policy profiles tab.
  2. In the policy properties window, select Application settings > Essential protection.
  3. In the Anti-Theft section, configure device locking:
    • Specify the number of characters in the unlock code.
    • Specify the text to be displayed when the device is locked.
  4. Click the Save button to save the changes you have made to the policy and exit the policy properties window.

Mobile device settings are configured after the next device synchronization with Kaspersky Security Center.
