We now support the use of Google’s compliance screens on Android Enterprise dedicated devices that leverage kiosk mode. As a result, you can now configure a password policy and ensure that your end-users will be guided down a path to enforce said policy. The screens will get invoked if you configure a password policy in device configuration and/or device compliance. That experience would look something like this (this example is a password policy requiring 4 digits):

Below are other screens your users may see, depending on what compliance policies you have applied to their devices. We will update as more screens get introduced.

A couple of things to note about this feature:
The 9 days until wipe that shows in the screens is the default behavior of the Google compliance screen if the device is non-compliant with the policies that have been configured in console. So, even if you said in Intune to “mark device as non-compliant but not wipe it” the end-user will see this screen and their device would get wiped after 9 days if they remain non-compliant.
On some Android devices running OS 10 or lower, encryption can’t be enforced unless the device also has a passcode. For these devices, if you require encryption for compliance but don’t set a policy for device password, the user won’t have a great remediation path for gaining compliance and their device will be at risk of wipe.
