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
