Configure the mobile operating system to disable all pre-installed public cloud backup applications.

(Note: Refer to the Supplemental document for the list.)

Check Contents

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 "Application disable list" setting in the "Android Application" rule.
2. Verify the setting includes all pre-installed public cloud backup applications.

(Note: The following applications are known to be pre-installed public cloud applications, but other applications can be found on other devices: Google Drive, Dropbox, Verizon Cloud, AT&T Locker.)

(Note: Refer to the Supplemental document for the list.)

On the Samsung Knox for Android device:
1. Attempt to locate and launch the pre-installed public cloud applications that are included on the disable list.
