Change User Access Control setting

The User Access Control settings help prevent potentially harmful programs and software from making changes to your device. If you've received a message about adjusting these controls, it means that your organization requires your device to have more protection from User Access Control.

  2. Select System and Security.
  3. Under Security and Maintenance, select Change User Account Control settings.
  4. Move the slider to one of the following levels:
    • Notify me when apps try to make changes to my computer
    • Always notify
  5. Select OK to save your changes.
  6. Select Yes when prompted to confirm the changes.

Check device settings

After you make changes to User Account Control, return to Company Portal and sync your device.

  1. Open Company Portal for Windows.
  2. Select Settings.
  3. Select Sync.
