Android devices in Device inventory - Microsoft Defender for Endpoint

Copper Contributor

Hello,

What is the reason or why android mobile devices appear in Device inventory - Microsoft Defender for Endpoint if they are not registered in MS Intune?
In Microsoft Defender Vulnerability Management vulnerabilities related to such devices appear where android needs to be updated to the latest version but there is no information in the device about who uses such phones and they are not in MS Intune

Your situation must be due to the below:
"In addition to managing settings for Microsoft Defender for Endpoint on devices that enroll with Intune, you can manage Defender for Endpoint security configurations on devices that aren’t enrolled with Intune. This scenario is called Security Management for Microsoft Defender for Endpoint and requires configuring the Allow Microsoft Defender for Endpoint to enforce Endpoint Security Configurations toggle to On."

Here is MSLearn link which specifies the text above:
https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/mem/intune/protect/advanced-threat-protection-configure

That toggle setting 'Allow Microsoft Defender for Endpoint to enforce Endpoint Security Configurations' is in the Intune Portal --> Endpoint Security --> Microsoft Defender for Endpoint node
