Add an app or signing certificate to the approved app list

To prevent sideload detection for a specific
Android
app or for all
Android
or
iOS
apps that use a developer’s signing certificate, you can add the app or certificate to the approved app list. Note that all
Android
and
iOS
apps that you upload to the management console are approved automatically (regardless of whether you have deployed the app from
UEM
) and do not cause compliance violations.
BlackBerry
has already added specific signing certificates, including the
Amazon Appstore
certificate and
Samsung
Kids Home signing certificate, to the approved list. You cannot remove these certificates.
  1. In the management console, on the menu bar, click
    Settings > BlackBerry Protect > Approved apps
