I'm wondering if a policy can be set requiring a passcode on the mobile device when logging into a corporate account in Teams mobile. What I'm looking for is similar to the mobile policy settings for Exchange that require a user to have a passcode on their mobile device when connecting to our Exchange server. Personally, I don't know anyone who doesn't have a passcode or pattern security enabled on their mobile devices, but apparently people run around with their phones totally unsecured.

 

Thanks!

We have a similar requirement but for some of our retail store employees.  We'd like to be able to add our store manager accounts on some devices, but if a customer got hold of them, we'd like to require a password to launch the client.

Hi,

This can be done but you need one of the following licenses:
Microsoft MDM, Microsoft Intune or Microsoft EMS.

With Intune you can set policies on apps, so the mobile device itself doesn’t need to be rolled out using Intune.

Let me know if this answers your question.

Kind regards and stay healthy,
