Hello!

I am using Intune for our MDM. Some users reported that their Android Device (which is configured using BYOD) requires an 8-Digit Passcode. Our configuration policy only requires 4-Digits though. Can somebody help me point into the right direction?

It only affects BYOD Users (for now)

Thanks!

    The configuration profile only states the minimum required length of 4, but a length of 4-16 can be used. I am not very familiar with newer Android devices, but this could be a restriction of newer versions of Android not allowing passcodes shorter than 6 or 8 digits.

    Do you have a MAM policy applied by any chance?
