Deploy a Passcode payload to require users to protect their devices with passcodes each time they return from an idle state. This action ensures that all sensitive corporate information on managed devices remains protected.

Important:

Passcode payloads apply only to Windows Rugged devices and not Windows CE devices.

To enforce a Passcode profile:

  1. Navigate to Devices > Profiles > List View > Add and select Add Profile.
  2. Select Windows Rugged.
  3. Configure the profile's General settings.

    These settings determine how the profile deploys and who receives it. For more information on General settings, see Add General Profile Settings.

  4. Select the Passcode profile.
