Force Include Address Book In Content Protection IT policy rule


This rule specifies whether the address book on a BlackBerry® device is encrypted when content protection is turned on.

By default, the content protection feature on a BlackBerry device is designed to encrypt the user data on the BlackBerry device when it is locked, but the user can choose to turn off content protection for the address book.

Default value

The default value is False. Call display and Bluetooth® contacts transfer work when the BlackBerry device is locked and content protection is turned on.


Change this rule to True to require that content protection includes contacts when a BlackBerry device is locked. In the General Security Options, a user cannot change the Include Address Book field. Call display and Bluetooth contacts transfer do not work when the BlackBerry device is locked.

Minimum requirements

  • Java® based BlackBerry device
  • BlackBerry® Application Suite version 1.0
  • BlackBerry® Device Software version 4.2
  • BlackBerry® Enterprise Server version 4.0 SP6
