How to set a Passcode/PIN on mobile device

Staff wanting to access their University email from a mobile device are required to have a Passcode set on their device, this applies to both University owned as well as  personally owned devices. If your device does not have a Passcode enabled then you will not be able to access your University staff email.  Further information about mobile device security can be found on the Information Security page.

Please note:  The University enforces a Passcode for iPhone or iPads as well as other mobile devices that connect to UniSA staff email.  The University does not enforce other mobile policies to your device.
