InformationThis recommendation pertains to the maximum number of minutes a device may remain inactive before auto-locking.
NOTE: This recommendation refers to maximum auto-lock, consistent with the interface language, but iOS and iPadOS devices treat it as auto-lock at exactly 2 minutes.
Automatically locking the device after a short period of inactivity reduces the probability of an attacker accessing the device without entering a passcode.
SolutionOpen Apple Configurator.
Open the Configuration Profile.
In the left windowpane, click on the Passcode tab.
In the right windowpane, set the Maximum Auto-Lock to 2 minutes.
Deploy the Configuration Profile.
This is not enforced during certain activities; such as watching movies.
