Enter values as a comma-separated list. Include a wildcard (com.abc*) for multiple apps. When a currently installed app matches a package signature <string> in both the allow and block list, then the allow list has precedence and the package is installed.
    • Use the Application Blacklist by Signature used control to block applications by signature <string> and prevent them from being installed on the PO. Specified third party application signatures not part of the device system image will be blocked when included in a comma separated list. Include a wildcard (com.abc*) for multiple apps.
