I know a strong password can be set on the device, but my concern is that users will change the password to 1234 or their name, and security to none. I see there is also a new rule to Disable data exchange for Mobile Hotspot mode (WiFi Category), but isn't that required to be able to connect to the MHS?

Thank you for your help - it is much appreciated.

Are we talkin about device password or SSID password?
hot spot mode policies is for devices connecting to the BlackBerry no the other way around

Still rocking my DTEK60
