You can apply policies to iOS and Android apps in your App Management organization. For an overview of the policies feature, see About Policies. For instructions on applying policies to apps, see Apply Policies to an App

Policies and Unregistered or Disabled Users

Unregistered Users: You may want to apply policies to an app that will be distributed to users who are not registered with App Management and do not need the App Catalog on their device. This includes users who install an app through a Direct Install link, a custom-built catalog, or another external system. Not all policies are supported with unregistered users. For more information, see Manage Policy Settings.

Disabled Users: If a user installs an app with policies applied, and that user is later disabled or deleted, App Management will block the user from running the app. 

Policies and Hybrid Apps

While policies are supported with native iOS and Android apps only, the hybrid apps feature provides a way to also apply policies to web apps. A hybrid app delivers a web app as part of a native iOS or Android app. Therefore, like any other iOS or Android app, you can apply policies to it. For more information, see Hybrid Applications (Delivering a Web App as a Native App). App Management Policies
