Passcodes ensure the protection of the files and information on a device. Their restriction should force users to choose a strong passcode and change it regularly, improving the security.

>> TO SETUP PASSWORD RESTRICTIONS:

From your TinyMDM dashboad:
– Go to the Policies tab
– Create a new policy from scratch or edit an already existing policy
– In the Device security policy section, set the password quality, minimum size and timeout. Please note that for work profile setup, password restrictions only apply to get in the corporate container, not to unlock the device itself.
