Hi,

 

Does anybody know if there is a way to prevent the Mobile Companion app from being uninstalled? Or failing this, if administrators can be notified if the app is uninstalled?

 

Thanks in advance,

 

George

Greetings George,

 

You can prevent apps from being uninstalled by setting the Allow Removing Apps restriction to No, but this will only work for iOS devices that are supervised or Android devices that are enrolled via Android for Work.  Also, the Allow Removing Apps restriction will prevent removal of all apps on the device, not just the Barracuda Mobile Companion app.  Administrators can setup notifications if the Mobile Companion app has been uninstalled by creating a Compliance rule.  With the compliance rules, admins can also attempt to reinstall any missing managed applications if a device is out of compliance.
