Password policy for iPad auto-lock time period

Hi Team

We are using Sophos mobile deployment for our iPads

The latest iOS on the iPads gives several options to use Auto-Lock screen time which include 10 and 15min wait time

These options are not avialable in the Password Policy option for Auto-Lock in Sophos mobile


Can you assist? Is there anything we can do to increase the Auto-lock on the policy to 10min ( current maximum available is 5min )




  • Hi  

    Unfortunately, the auto-lock time is set to a maximum 5 minutes. The device will be locked if it has not been used. You can try the "Maximum grace period for device lock" within the Passcode settings which helps for how long the device can be unlocked after a lock without a password prompt. You can raise a feature request for the option to be added in future releases.
