|Zebra Android 11 must be configured to enforce a minimum password length of six characters.
|Password strength is a measure of the effectiveness of a password in resisting guessing and brute force attacks. The ability to crack a password is a function of how many attempts an adversary is...
|Zebra Android 11 must be configured to lock the display after 15 minutes (or less) of inactivity.
|The screen lock timeout must be set to a value that helps protect the device from unauthorized access. Having a too-long timeout would increase the window of opportunity for adversaries who gain...
|Zebra Android 11 must be configured to enable a screen-lock policy that will lock the display after a period of inactivity.
|The screen-lock timeout helps protect the device from unauthorized access. Devices without a screen-lock timeout provide an opportunity for adversaries who gain physical access to the mobile...
