Admin Password

The Admin password is required to unlock a device, send Anti-Theft commands, access password-protected features and uninstall ESET Endpoint Security for Android.

Creating Admin password blocks users from changing the ESET Endpoint Security for Android settings.


Choose the password carefully. To increase security, use a combination of small letters, capital letters and numbers.

To reset the Admin password on a device with a locked screen:

1.Tap Forgotten password? > Continue > Request verification code. If the device is not connected to the internet, tap the choose offline reset link instead and contact ESET Technical Support.


2.An email containing the verification code and device ID will be sent to the email address associated with the ESET license. The verification code will be active for seven days. Type the verification code and a new password on your device's locked screen.
