Fix Recommendation

Configure the Google Android device to allow only 10 or fewer consecutive failed authentication attempts.

On the MDM Console:
1. Open password requirements.
2. Open device password section.
3. Set "Maximum Number of Failed Attempts" to a number between 1 and 10.

Check Contents

Review Google Android device configuration settings to determine if the mobile device has the maximum number of consecutive failed authentication attempts set at 10 or fewer.

This validation procedure is performed on both the MDM Administration Console and the Android Pie device.
On the MDM console, do the following:

1. Open password requirements.
2. Open device password section.
3. Review the policy configuration that was pushed down to the device and ensure the "Maximum Number of Failed Attempts" is set between 1 and 10.

On the Android Pie device, do the following:
1. Open Setting >> Security & location >> Managed device info
2. Verify "Failed password attempts before deleting all device data" is set to 10 or fewer attempts .

If the MDM console device policy is not set to the maximum number of consecutive failed authentication attempts at 10 or fewer or on the Android Pie device, the device policy is not set to the maximum number of consecutive failed authentication attempts at 10 or fewer, this is a finding.
