The Codeproof EMM administrator can remotely prevent end users from turning off the location service on their devices. Here are the steps to do this:

Login to Codeproof Cloud Console

  1. Go to Mobile Policy Manager from the TOP menu
  2. Then select a single device and or a group of devices from the left side tree
  3. From the right side panel, go to "Samsung Security" and then go to "Device Restrictions"
  4. Check "Enable" checkbox and then uncheck "Enable GPS Settings Changes"
  5. Then hit "Save"
  6. Now end users won't be able to disable location services on selected Samsung Or LG Devices. See below image illustrations.
