Passcodes Payload

A passcodes payload specifies requirements for the passcode that the user sets in order to access the device. If there is more than one passcodes payload applied to the folder a device is in, only the payload with the highest priority will be sent to the device. You can view the payloads that have been sent to the device by viewing the device details.

Devices with this payload will force users to set a passcode by displaying the screen unlock settings screen. While users can cancel out of the screen, it will continue to reappear until a password is set.

A passcodes payload has the following options:

The minimum number of characters the passcode is allowed to have.

Password age

The length of time in minutes of inactivity before the screen locks.

Failed logins

The number of failed attempts to unlock the device before all data on the device is erased.

Alphanumeric Settings

Uppercase characters

If you are managing devices using Android Enterprise work profile mode, you can create passcode requirements for the work profile using an Android Enterprise Passcodes payload. When you create an Android Enterprise Passcodes payload, you can select whether you want the payload's passcode requirements to apply to just the work profile or to both the work profile and the device. For more information about Android Enterprise work profiles, see Work Profile Mode.
