This validation procedure is performed on both the MDM Administration Console and the Samsung Knox for Android device.

Check whether the appropriate setting is configured on the MDM Administration Console:
1. Ask the MDM administrator to display the "Max Time to Lock" setting in the "Android Password Restrictions" rule.
2. Verify the value of the setting is 15 minutes or less.

On the Samsung Knox for Android device:
1. Unlock the device.
2. Refrain from performing any activity on the device for 15 minutes.
3. Verify the device requires the user to enter the device unlock password to access the device.
(Note: Max time to lock is the sum of the display screen timeout and the lock screen delay on the device. On MDM configuration, the device makes a choice for these settings so that the sum is 15 minutes or less.)

If the user does not have to unlock the device after 15 minutes of inactivity, this is a finding.
