    Removing "Self Destruct" password function in IT Policy

    Advertisement



    Hey everyone! First post here...so be gentle

    I'm a part of a technical support team here...our BB admin wanted me to do some research on how to disable the "Erase/disable handheld after X amount of failed password attempts" policy that is pushed. I'm looking within our IT policy, and I'm not seeing anything to do that though.

    My personal belief is that it's a very nice feature, that makes sense...but the guys here don't trust our users not to break their blackberrys (...and I can see their point. lol)

    Any advice or guidence would be most appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    Hello Malachyte and Welcome to the Stacks. I'm not sure there is a way to erase this. However, if you go to Options/Security/General Settings you should be able to disable the password feature. However, your users will still have the ability to enable this feature if they so desire.

    Ick...I was hoping there was more then "Set X amount of password attempts and siable" and "Have no passwords at all"

    That feature is very annoying, but understandable. With all the coporate info, data, etc then it is necessary.

    You're going to need to ask RIM, themselves. Does your company have a TSupport for their BES servers?

    I think the short answer is "with power comes responsibility." So the answer is probably no.

    This option cannot be changed. It is a builtin security feature that cannot be modified.
