Block or rate limit for Android OS update

Hi!

We have a mx84 as a firewall, for wifi we have another manufacturer APs. We would like to block or rate limit android OS updates of cell phones . For iOS updates I know that it is possible using the layer 7 firewall rule for url: mesu.apple.com and appldnld.apple.com I was thinking doing the same for android: play.google.com ; but I am not sure if that url it is correct for android OS update and besides that it will also block app, movie and books download(we dont want this last).

 

do you have any suggestion?

Thanks for your time!

Block the category "Software & anti-virus updates".  For the sub-category choose "software updates".

Re: Block or rate limit for Android OS update

i have switched on this "Software & anti-virus updates", but androids  still get their updates downloaded and installed.

How do i check if this layer 7 is working correctly ?

what does is scan for ? or how does it recognize app-updates ?

Re: Block or rate limit for Android OS update

I tried blocking app updates.
That doesn't work

I also tried rate limiting android app upgrades, also that did not seem to do any good.
