Hi, there is a fixlet standard to automate removal of blacklisted applications?

Best Regards, Marco.

The current versions of Android and iOS don’t allow you to forcibly remove or blacklist apps (although some Android device vendors have added this functionality).

You can however warn the user about blacklisted apps and prompt them to remove it… Example of this:

and if user doesn’t remove it? How to lock the device temporarily?

Hi Corda,

It depends on which device… You typically have options to:

  • warn the user (iOS or Android)
  • “selective wipe” or “deprovision” the device (iOS or Android with supported email app partner)
  • wipe the device completely – this is a pretty extreme punishment, but might be appropriate with corporate devices (works for both iOS and Android)
