Restrict user account

Frequent Contributor

Dear all,

 

Can I check with you guys, when we use the user account to enrol a new laptop/desktop, the system will auto put the user account into the 'Administrator group' Thus, the user will get the admin privilege.

 

In this case, is there have a way something like self creates a restricted configuration profile in Intune, to restrict the user self install software or run cmd as admin?

 

Will be grateful for any help you can provide.

Thank you.  =)

You will need applocker, but when using applocker you will need to make sure the user doesn't has admin permission... Also there is no security when being local admin :)

Hi,

I'll suggest to use Autopilot to enroll new devices, in which you can define a profile that will make the enrolling user a standard user and not an admin.

for existing devices you can create a Policy CSP - LocalUsersAndGroups in Intune to modify the members on the local administrators group (Starting from Windows 10, version 20H2)

hope this helps.
