Locking a Device

About this task

To enable the lock screen on a device:


  1. Select the device(s) that you want to lock and click the Lock icon in the Device Actions menu bar.
  2. If supported by the selected device, enter a message and phone number to appear on the lock screen of the device.
  3. If applicable, click the warning message at the bottom of the dialog box to see why SOTI MobiControl cannot enable the lock screen on some of the selected devices.
  4. Click Lock.


Note: The Lock device action activates a device's native lock screen. It does not enable screen lock security options on devices where they were not previously enabled.
