How To Use Device Administrator - Samsung Galaxy Tab 4

Learn how to use device administrator on your Samsung Galaxy Tab 4. Use the Device Administration feature to select one or more administration applications that control your device for security purposes (for example, if your phone is lost of stolen). These applications enforce remote or local device security policies.

Some of the features a device administration application might control are:

  • Setting the number of failed password attempts before the device is restored to factory settings.
  • Automatically locking the device.
  • Restoring factory settings on the device.

Note: If a device uses multiple enabled administration applications, the strictest policy is enforced.

  • From the Settings screen, touch General > Security.
  • Touch Device administrators, to select a device administrator, and follow the prompts. If no device administrators are listed, you can download them from the Play Store.
  • Touch Unknown sources to download and install non-Market applications.

Note: Enabling this option causes your phone and personal data to be more vulnerable to attack by applications from unknown sources.

  • Touch Verify apps to cause your phone to either block or warn you before installing apps that may cause harm to your phone.

Security Update Service

To set security update service settings:

  • From the Settings screen, touch General > Security.
  • Touch Security policy updates to automatically check for changes to the security policy and download any updates to improve security and service.
  • Touch Send security reports to send security reports to Samsung, using Wi-Fi, for threat analysis.
