Location Services

Is there a way to remotely enable or disable Location services on Mobile devices?

Once enabled / disabled , is there a way to prevent the mobile user from changing that setting?

  • Hi Jay,

    Thanks for reaching out to the Sophos Community Forum. 

    It is not currently possible to define whether location services will remain enabled or disabled on a mobile device using SMC. 

    It is possible for you to apply a compliance policy which states that the device needs to have location service enabled to pass the compliance check. If the compliance check is not passed, you can specify tasks or additional actions to take place that can restrict the actions the end-user can perform on the device.
