How can we improve Microsoft Intune

Provide options to disable or prevent factory reset option for Personal devices.

Provide the ability to prevent a factory reset from being able to be performed for devices enrolled as personal devices. Only allow an enterprise or selective wipe for said devices. It's way too easy for a mistake to be made which can open up a can of legal issues. Our current MDM (Airwatch) allows for this and the device wipe option only appears on the admin console for corporate owned devices.

        Hi Mikhail,

        It doesn't look like you can assign this to global admins, that's the issue I have faced previously.

        Thanks
        Rob

        if i'm not mistaking this is already implemented ;)
        just use custom roles
        go to Dashboard => Microsoft Intune => Intune roles - All roles
        Create custom role and set Wipe permissions under Permissions => Remote tasks
        scope this role to your BYOD devices and assign it to service desk ...

        Is there any update on this request? I would love the ability to disable the factory reset option also

        hi, please can we make this happen? Simply removing the Reset, Rename and remove options for users would be very useful

        This is an absolute deal-breaker for many staff at our company - how can Corporate IT have the power to factory reset a personal device?
