  1. Automatic removal of malware/PUA apps

    In case that malware or PUA are found on a mobile device it would be great if SMC would automatically initiate a task that removes the corresponding app (either with/ or without user interaction).

  2. WiFi/Geo Fence on Device

    I would like to see the ability to WiFi/Geo fence a device that isn't using containers AND alert/lock the device when outside the fence.

    I'm new to Sophos, it's the MDM platform used by my vendor, where I use Meraki (which has this feature). Unfortunately, I can't use 2 MDM profiles on iPads, so i'm stuck with the lack of securing corporate devices with Sophos.

    Also, I notice the container fence for WiFi uses SSID instead of WAN IP's. This leaves a security hole where it's easy to get the passphrase from existing WPA2 profiles, and just recreate the SSID…

  4. Disable Root Warning

    As of newer version, Mobile security spams rooted users with a risk notification. I suggest providing an option to disable that notification as it gets tiresome to keep seeing it pop up. Most rooted users are well aware of the risks.

  6. mobile security for android

    Dear Sir/Madam ,

    Fisrt of all , I want to thank you for the best and full-featured free mobile security in the market . It 's so light but very professional at the same time .
    If possible , I have some suggestions for the next versions of the app .
    1) "Custom scan" option to manually scan files , folders or OTG flash drives .
    2) Showing the procedure when the scaning or updating is in progress .
    3) Sending SMS commands from any sim card instead of predefined sim cards , because the predefined ones may not be…

  7. Mobile Security Authenticator

    The authenticator functionality needs a method for transporting the keys between phones. I just spent 5 hours moving them out of sophos and into auth because this app does have that feature. This is a major failing that will make the functionality unusable in the medium term as phones change or get lost too often not to have backups of such vital info.

  8. Webfiltering / Accessability Services for Android Enterprise Profile

    Enable the Webfiltering Feature (depends on Accessability Service) for Android Enterprise profiles, so Enterprise Browser is protected and opening links in corporate GMail is safe for Users.

  10. Copy & Paste within the Sophos Email App only

    Copy & Paste within the Sophos Email App only – having issues with our users on BYOD not being able to copy text\URLs to the Sophos email app or within its container only. The only option I can see is to all copy to clip board but this then allows users to copy email text\info outside of the container. this seems to only be on Apple devices

  11. Allow Wifi Access while App Protection Enabled

    Currently If the app protection is enabled then the settings are password protected as well, therefore, as the WiFi-settings are a sub-component of the "Settings" app, the password prompt appears can currently not be changed.

    I discovered if we download a secondary app that can add wifi networks that seems to work as a workaround.

    Possible update request to this app would be to add a built in wifi manager that would work around the system default one allowing for settings lock down but still granting access to add wifi networks.

  12. Remove Ability to Trust Apps

    Based on the threat landscape for mobile apps, users should not be allowed to trust an app. All apps must be scanned upon update, installation and at least once a week if it connects to the internet for use. Trusting an app is equivalent to leaving your front door unlocked.

  13. True call reject

    Hello everybody!

    First off, I really like the Sophos mobile security for Android app. It gives me peace of mind, I must say.

    Only thing that, in my opinion, still has room for improvement is the call / SPAM blocker.

    It is great to have the whitelisting option which allows you to accept calls from parties which are saved in your contacts list. I set the following options (which probably most users will do who really have enough of cold calls): block all calls without ID (CLIR) and block all calls execept for numbers from your contact list.

    The only…

  15. Include all security warning events in Android app log

    I encountered a webpage security warning apparently generated by the app and immediately chose to block, but afterwards wanted to investigate. Cannot find this event logged in the app, so cannot check threat details or even verify that the warning was indeed a genuine Sophos warning. Please include all threat detections in the app log.

    [Note to Sophos: If the scenario described above suggests that I encountered a fake warning, then please let me know!]

  16. Link Checker for DuckDuckGo browser.

    The SOPHOS Link Checker is an excellent and much needed feature. It works flawlessly on my HTC One M9 (Android 6.0) when integrated with the HTC or Chrome browser; and both browser icons appear on the SOPHOS Link Checker page. I have disabled the aforementioned browsers and decided to install the more "secured, efficient and lighter" DuckDuckGo browser.

    When I enable the Link Checker feature, the SOPHOS browser instantly activated and becomes the default browser, but the DuckDuckGo browser icon does NOT appear on that same screen/page. When I tap on a link in the mail client a message flashes…

  18. Add Bromite to supported browsers?

    Chrome is supported for web filtering and Bromite is just Chrome with add-ons. This seems like it would be easy to add support for web filtering for this browser.
    Can this be added?

  19. Need Option to BACKUP all BLOCKED NUMBERS under CALL BLOCKING -- App Reinstall Failsafe

    I recently had an issue with accessing the left side Navigation Menu on the Sophos Mobile Security app. When I tried to identify a solution for this by posting about it in the Sophos Community forum, the suggestion given to me was to UnInstall and ReInstall the app. But no one offered me a solution when I asked them back to provide me a way to backup the long list of phone numbers I had already added to the Call Blocking option (Always Blocked category) of the Sophos Mobile Security app, before I even try to UnInstall the app.

    So,…

  20. Exclude personal dictionary from protected settings (self protection)

    When self protection is enabled the system settings are also protected by default. So you have to unlock the settings when you want to enter a word to your personal dictionary. After unlocking, the main settings page shows up, not the personal dictionary, so you have to start the process to add the entry again. That is very uncomfortable if not anoying.

    Can the personal dictionary be excluded from protecting the settings? I am afraid it is not, because the access goes via system settings. Nevertheless I address it here.
