The Devices menu is visible for usersIn Okta literature, we generally refer to "users" as the people who serve as Okta administrators. When we refer to "end users" we are generally referring to the people who the administrators serve. That is, those who use Okta chiclets to access their apps, but have no administrative control. who use the Okta Mobility Management (OMM) feature.

Security Policies for Devices

There are two security policy settings on the Devices menu, Mobile Policies and WiFi. For other security settings, see Security Policies.

Mobile Policies

Mobile policies allow you to regulate the use of company resources on mobile devices enrolled in OMMAn acronym for Okta Mobility Management. OMM enables you to manage your users' mobile devices, applications, and data. Your users enroll in the service and can then download and use managed apps from the Apps Store. Managed apps are typically work-related, such as Box or Expensify. As an administrator, you can remove managed apps and associated data from users' devices at any time. You can configure policies, such as data sharing controls, on any of your managed apps. See Configuring Okta Mobility Management for more information.. These policies are made up of platform-based rules, and allow you to enforce: 

  • The platforms you support (iOS, OS X, Android)
  • The device passcode requirements for each platform

    • If you support Android for Work, you can also set passcode requirements for managed apps, in addition to or instead of passcode requirements for devices (Android 7.0+ only). For details, see Configure a Work profile passcode policy.
  • How data is shared between managed and unmanaged apps

Mobile policies are applied to specific groups, which allows you to create multiple policies that give different levels of access to different people. Unless another policy applies, all end usersIn Okta literature, we generally refer to "end users" as the people who have their own Okta home page (My Applications), using chiclets to authenticate into all of their apps. End users do not have any administrative control. When we refer to "users" we are generally referring to the individual(s) who have administrative control. are subject to the read-only Default Policy, which denies enrollment to all devices. Changes to policies do not deprovision users.
