disable access to device settings ?

disable access to device settings ?

Hello all,


I have a mobicontrol server on version :

Our device is zebra tc75x with agent on version : 13.6 build 1476

Some device are in android 6.0 and 7.0

Devices are enrolled by android+


I've find on google this link:



In this link , it's possible to disable access to device setting with application control.


I would like to do the SAME thing but I can't find it on my server version -> v13

Any idea perhaps or I need to buy some brill ?


thanks for your time

I don't have any Zebra TC75x to test out if any of the following works or not:


1. If your device does not have any Android+ application run control profile payload with whitelist(s) deployed, then add one with application-run-control payload, and include an app blacklist with either %settings%  or  com.android.settings


2. Send the following script to the target device

  writesecureprofstring DeviceFeature DisableSettings 1

  apply featurecontrol

Hello matt,

Yes my device is well enrolled by android+.

thanks for your reply but yes I've look inside the profile -> feature control and I have these options :

- hardware

- application

- cellular data and roaming

- wifi

- bluethooth

- tethering and portable hot spot

- data protection

- device messaging

- device account


my level in English is bad of course but on these options I can't find anything who seems to disable to device settings ....

could you tell me which is the name of this option ?


I know a little zebra mx, but our technicien must be set more than 100 new device and I think it will be better that all our restriction is on a profile on mobicontrol (lockdown, black list app, ...)


thanks matt

Have you tried Feature Control in an Android+ Profile? If not you can accomplish this with Zebra MX as well. With MX you can present a restricted version of the Settings app or hide it completely.
