Understanding the Permanency of Management Policies on Non-Samsung Devices Upgraded to Android 14

Posted by

An issue has been identified 14 where some management policies become permanent on non-Samsung devices. This occurs when a device is from Android 13 to Android 14, making certain settings permanent. Additionally, rebooting devices upgraded to Android 14 also causes some settings to become permanent.

Android 14: Management Settings Made Permanent

Microsoft’s Support Team has recently highlighted a known issue with Android 14. On non-Samsung devices, some management settings become permanent after the upgrade from Android 13.

What’s New?

Google has identified two issues in Android 14 that affect device management policies. This problem surfaces when a device is upgraded from Android 13 to Android 14, leading to certain settings becoming permanent on the device.

What Happens After Upgrade?

Notably, when devices that have been upgraded to Android 14 are rebooted, other settings also become permanent. This is a significant change that could impact how users interact with their devices.

Example Scenario

For instance, if you’re managing a device with a personally-owned work profile running Android 13, and you have enabled the settings to block the camera and block apps from unknown sources, these settings will become permanent once the device upgrades to Android 14.
