Block all applications and only run a specific one

Good day Folks,

I would like to block the use/download of all existing applications and run only one native application developed for the company.

Is this possible to do?

I would not like users to use anything else, no calls, no messages, just the use of one application only.

Thank you

  • Hi Ruben,

    Thanks for reaching out to the Sophos Community Forum. 

    If you wish to restrict applications on your devices, you will need to first create an app group that includes all of the applications you wish to restrict. You can then go into one of your Android Enterprise Policies to add "App Control" to the policy. This will allow you to specify the app group you created. 

    Another option would be to use "Kiosk Mode" on the desired device. You can find basic steps on how to set this up in the following article. With Kiosk Mode you will instead define an app group with apps that you wish to allow instead of block. Where the KBA states "Device Policy" you will select "Android Enterprise device policy".
