The system application disable list controls user access to/execution of all core and preinstalled applications. Core application: Any application integrated into Google Android Pie by Google. Preinstalled application: Additional noncore applications included in the Google Android Pie build by Google or the wireless carrier. Some system applications can compromise DoD data or upload users' information to non-DoD-approved servers. A user must be blocked from using such applications that exhibit behavior that can result in compromise of DoD data or DoD user information. The site administrator must analyze all preinstalled applications on the device and disable all applications not approved for DoD use by configuring the system application disable list.
