Copy and paste from Personal space to Work profile is not blocked after applying UEM policy

Last updated July 26th, 2023



  • Android Enterprise (AE) - Profile Owner (PO), Corporate Owned Personal Enabled (COPE), Work Profile on Company-owned Device (WPCOD - OS 11)

  • Samsung devices running Android OS 9, 10, 11


On Samsung Android devices provisioned with a work profile, copy and paste functionality is not blocked from the personal space to work profile even though the IT administrator has applied a policy to block this functionality.


The policy, DISALLOW_SHARE_INTO_MANAGED_PROFILE, is not fully supported. Note that sharing files from personal space to work profile is blocked with this policy.


The engineering team is working on fully supporting DISALLOW_SHARE_INTO_MANAGED_PROFILE in a future OS update.
