Ok. i am very annoyed with the blacklisting in Android.
for IOS. it just works. you blacklist an app. there is no way an user can install said app. and it just disappears if the app was before the blacklisting.
for Android, it only works for "system apps". so i can blacklist an app that comes with a phone, but i cannot avoid for a user to install that app.
the only workaround i found, is setting up security policies... so. if the user install a blacklisted app. i can disable "any other other apps" (bescause they require that the device is secure)... but not the app i want to blacklist.
any other workaround? or a proper blacklist.
PD. yes i know, that i can disable the ability to install any app from my users.(disable appstore and apk install) but that is not my objective..
I would use whitelists for corporate owned devices and then use BYOD/Work profile for personal devices and disable data transfer between normal apps and work profile apps.
Personally, I would be pretty annoyed if you told me I needed to put Device Owner on my personal device. Or do you maybe still mean corporate owned for business use? Then have a form for App requests. There are so many play store apps that ask for full file read / contact permissions simply for the point of data mining.
