Protect work files when a mobile device is lost or stolen

The policy settings determine what happens automatically to protect a device that is lost or stolen. We recommend you accept the default values during setup to create application policies for Android, iOS, and Windows 10 that apply to all users. You can create more policies after setup completes.

Settings that protect work files

The following settings are available to protect work files if a user's device is lost or stolen:

Setting
Description
Delete work files from an inactive device after this many days
If a device is not used for the number of days that you specify here, any work files stored on the device will automatically be deleted.
Force users to save all work files to OneDrive for Business
If this setting is On, the only available save location for work files will be OneDrive for Business.
Encrypt work files
Keep this setting On so that work files are protected by encryption. Even if the device is lost or stolen, no one will be able to read your company data.
