  • iOS: Yes
  • Android: Yes
  • Default setting: On

Require device lock

  • iOS: No
  • Android: Yes
  • Default setting: Off

Note:

On Android M devices, the Device PIN or passcode and Device pattern screen lock options have the same effect: With either of those options, the app is locked if the device does not have a PIN, passcode, or pattern screen lock set.

Miscellaneous access

App update grace period (hours)

  • iOS: Yes
  • Android: Yes
  • Default setting: 168 hours (7 days)

    Note:

    Citrix recommends using a value other than zero (0). A zero value immediately prevents users, without warning, from using a running app until they download and install the update. This setting may lead to a situation in which users are forced to exit the app and potentially lose work.

  • Android: Yes
  • Default setting: Off
