Many organizations use mobile devices and tablets in their work environment to mobilize their workforce, however, free access to multimedia, games and social networking applications can affect the workforce productivity. It becomes necessary to adopt a security measure which can lock down mobile devices and allow users to use only allowed applications and also restrict installation of third-party applications.
SureLock apart from blocking such non-productive applications, it also allows you to allow or block installation of applications by users.
To block application installation, just make sure the application package named PackageInstaller (Package Name: com.android.packageinstaller) is not added in the Allowed Applications list.
To allow the installation of applications, follow below-mentioned steps:
1. Enter the SureLock Admin Settings using password (default 0000)
2. Go to Allowed Applications
3. Click on Add to load the list of Available Applications
4. Locate the application named Package Installer (Package Name: com.android.packageinstaller) and add it to allowed applications list.
PackageInstaller is the package responsible for installation of applications on Android platform.
