Lock Screen Widgets under Device Administrator control
Hey Folks -
I'm running a 3rd party lock screen widget (ClockQ) on my Nexus 7 running 4.2.1.
I connected to my company's Exchange server, and went thru standard setup, seeing the "Device Administration" nag based on my company's policies:
Email now can:
- Erase All Data
- Set Password rules
- Monitor screen-unlock attempts
- Lock the screen
- Set lock-screen password expiration
- Set storage encryption
Now, when I unlock my phone, my clock widget is gone, and is replaced by the standard out-of-the-box clock.
For kicks, I deleted the email account and Device Admin policy, and the phone returned to "normal" ("my" custom lock screen came back). Put mail back on again, it's gone again.
So it seems like there's a bug in how Android handles this scenario, or there is some crazy-granular Exchange policy one could set to actually control / remove custom lock screen widgets on a mobile device.
I can't believe Microsoft would be "that good" and create such granular policies, so I'm guessing a more plane-jane bug.
I'm completely new to the android community. Have others seen this behavior? Is there a place online where I can log a bug?
