In Mobile Device Management (MDM), effectively managing battery consumption and data security during device inactivity periods is crucial. If a device's screen remains on during extended periods of inactivity, it may rapidly drain the battery. Additionally, if a device is left unattended in a public place, an unlocked screen could pose a significant data security risk. AirDroid Business's Screen Timeout Policy provides an excellent solution to these challenges, ensuring that all devices lock their screens promptly during inactive periods to conserve battery power and safeguard data security.
This article will guide you in understanding AirDroid Business's Screen Timeout Policy and implementing it step by step.
The Screen Timeout Policy in AirDroid Business is a feature that allows administrators to control the duration of idle time before a device's screen automatically turns off or goes to sleep.
The policy encompasses two key settings: Screen Timeout and Screen Timeout Adjust.
● Screen Timeout: Use this setting to keep the device awake or set the duration of idle time before the device gets put to sleep. Options include 15s, 30s, 1 min, 2 min, 5 min, 10 min, 30 min, or Keep Awake.
● Screen Timeout Adjust: Allow or disallow users to adjust the device screen timeout settings. This means administrators can either give users the flexibility to change the screen timeout settings as per their needs or keep it fixed as per the policy set by the administrator.
By using the Screen Timeout Policy, administrators can conserve device battery life, enhance device security, and ensure that the devices are used in line with the organization's policies.
Following these detailed steps, you can effectively manage device inactivity periods using the Screen Timeout Policy in AirDroid Business. This not only helps conserve battery life but also enhances data security by reducing the risk of unauthorized access during periods of inactivity.
