Controlling which applications can access the secure element on a device

You can use the "Is Access to the Secure Element Allowed" application control policy rule to control which applications on the BlackBerry® device can access the secure element. The secure element stores information, such as credit card information and identification, so that the device can use NFC features. This rule includes the following values:

  • Allow: the application is permitted to access the secure element on the device. The BlackBerry device user can set the Secure Element permission to Allow, Prompt, or Deny in the Application Management options on the device.
  • Not permitted: the application is not allowed to access the secure element on the device. The user can only set the Secure Element permission to Deny in the Application Management options on the device.
  • Prompt user: the device displays a message that provides the user with the option to Allow or Deny the application's request to access the secure element on the device. The user can set the Secure Element permission to Prompt or Deny in the Application Management options on the device.

For descriptions of application control policy rules, see the BlackBerry Enterprise Server Policy Reference Guide. For more information about configuring application control policy rules, see the BlackBerry Enterprise Server Administration Guide.
