Preventing RIM value-added applications from running on BlackBerry devices

You can use application control policy rules and IT policy rules to control whether Research In Motion® value-added applications are available on BlackBerry® devices. RIM value-added applications include the BlackBerry® Wallet and the ecommerce content optimization engine for the BlackBerry® Browser.

To prevent the RIM value-added applications from running on BlackBerry® Device Software versions earlier than 4.5, you can block all RIM value-added applications using the Disable RIM Value-Added Applications IT policy rule, or you can block specific RIM value-added applications using application-specific IT policy rules.

To prevent the RIM value-added applications from running on BlackBerry Device Software version 4.5 or later, you can use any of the following application-specific methods:

Application

Method

  • Configure the Disable BlackBerry Wallet IT policy rule to Yes.
  • Apply an application control policy rule to block all third-party applications, or apply an application control policy to block specific RIM value-added applications if you want to remove the RIM value-added applications from BlackBerry devices.
  • Configure the Disable RIM Value-Added Applications IT policy rule to Yes.

ecommerce content optimization engine for the BlackBerry Browser

  • Configure the Disable Ecommerce Content Optimization Engine IT policy rule to Yes.
  • Apply an application control policy rule to block all third-party applications, or apply an application control policy to block specific RIM value-added applications if you want to remove the RIM value-added applications from BlackBerry devices.
