Default Can BES administrator get/view files on my BB/MediaCard?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

I keep some passwords & sensitive documents on my:
/Device Memory/home/user/myfolder
/Media Card/myfolder

I am not familiar with BES's device management capabilities so I hope you can help. Is there ANY way for the admin to browse/view my BB's local files remotely?

Thanks!
Ix.

I don't think they can see your files but they can enable or disable media card use by IT policy...

Exactly what John said. Lockout is possible but audit it not.....yet.

Thanks, our IT policy allows Media Card usage, But I still keep my sensitive (text) files on the device memory itself, as I need them to self-distract with the device after 10 pass attempts.

As long as they can't be remotely viewed by the admin I am good.

Thanks!
