| Review configuration settings to confirm “Allow Touch ID to unlock device” is disabled. |
This check procedure is performed on both the iOS management tool and the iOS device.
Note: If an organization has multiple configuration profiles, then the check procedure must be performed on the relevant configuration profiles applicable to the scope of the review.
In the iOS management tool, verify "Allow Touch ID to unlock device" is unchecked.
Alternatively, verify the text "allowFingerprintForUnlock" appears in the configuration profile (.mobileconfig file).
On the iOS device:
1. Open the Settings app.
2. Tap "General".
3. Tap "Profiles" or "Profiles & Device Management" or "Device Management".
4. Tap the Configuration Profile from the iOS management tool containing the restrictions policy.
5. Tap "Restrictions".
6. Verify "Touch ID unlock not allowed" is listed.
If "Allow Touch ID to unlock device" is checked in the iOS management tool, "allowFingerprintForUnlock" appears in the configuration profile, or “Touch ID unlock not allowed" is not listed on the iOS device, this is a finding.
