The XML file alone will not help you. Chrome doesn't read the contents of that file directly. Instead, it accesses it via Android's UserManager.getApplicationRestrictions. In order for this to work, you actually need to set up a "work profile" on your device. In order to do that, you actually need to run the BasicManagedProfile app you have mentioned; this ...

If you have rooted your phone, you can build and push a system ChromeCustomizations app, which installs a content provider that allows among other things to disable Incognito mode in Chrome. This utilizes the officially supported way that phone manufacturers use in order to control the starting page and default bookmarks of Chrome on their phones.

Zimperium, the company that reported the vulnerability, has posted additional information about the vulnerabilities related to Stagefright.. In the Google Play Store, there is an application that will detect whether the vulnerability is present on your device. Apparently Samsung has also posted an app that will disable MMS on Samsung devices, though this is ...

As MMS(Multi-Media-Messaging) is one of multiple ways this exploit can be run, you can prevent this from MMS exploits. Stagefright on its own is not an exploit. Stagefright is a multimedia library built into the Android framework. The exploit was found in a multimedia tool hidden at deep system level, so almost all Android variants that have the tool ...

Messenger bubbles are an overlay. Messenger isn't actually interacting with the app running in the background, it's just drawing over it. Even this is a permission that can be denied. Android as an operating system is secure, but like all systems, it's as secure as the code running on it. Android sand boxes apps and only allows them to interact with each ...

Don't spread misinformation! Not many Android phones do it, not Samsung and especially not Apple and iOS! But you will find the feature in most Chinese phones flooding the market with cheap Android smartphones. I have it in my Alcatel Onetouch Idol 3 running Lollipop 5.0.2 and it's an awesome feature!

I don't need your password to access your data. I can disassemble your device or put into special mode that allows direct access. If your data is not encrypted I can pull your drive and connect to my pc to access.

I highly recommend MailWise. It has an Exchange override that allows you to turn off the server's influence over your device. Use it at your own risk (your employer may get whiny about it) but I can say it does work very well. In order to use the Exchange Security Bypass, you'll need to go to MailWise's FAQ and follow the instructions. You basically just ...

It sounds like you're overthinking the capabilities of NFC. Most devices are configured so that the phone must be unlocked in order for an NFC to be triggered (this can be overridden with an app). Unless you place you phone on a tag with the screen on and unlocked, the tag won't be read.

Smart Lock will unlock your device if any of the trusted places/faces/devices/etc. are found. Configuring multiple verification methods does not mean that you have to match all of them. You should be able to unlock your device with just your face without being in your trusted place. You can also unlock it by being in your trusted place and not showing it ...

The "Remove" option is only for Android Devices. If you have signed into other devices not running Android OS, then go to the bottom-right corner of your Gmail, click on "Details", and a "Activity Information" pop up window will open with the list of activities from all devices connected to that google account. In that pop up, if you are signed into ...

You can acces the common data service menu on any MTK device. You can open MTK engineermode first by dialling the number ##3646633## or by using the app mobileuncle from google play. In engineermode, go 1 tab to the right and click CDS information. Boom. Got it. I am not an expert , but with CDS and MTK engineer mode you can use all kinds of backdoors. ...
