Default Is it possible to bypass pin/security code in email app on stock rom?

Hi,

I'm trying to bypass the required pin/security code that my company's microsoft exchange email requires on a stock rom.

I installed the exchangen-no-pin hacked app that everyone uses on an AOSP rom, no problems.

But since I have decided that AOSP roms leave me with at least 1/3 less battery life than stock, I want to go back to stock. But I can't seem to get around the pin/security code policy b/c the hacked email apk doesn't work.

Anyone have any ideas?

I wish people like you would learn to research their answers before being rude to others. This Xposed mod does not work on Stock Rom. Is google not working for you?

Bypassing corporate security policies sounds like a good idea.

Use an email client such as Nine. That will allow you to satisfy the exchange server with an email app pin lock and wipe, instead of a device level admin lock and wipe.

Mailwise is another (free) email client that allows bypass exchange security if you enter a code you have to fetch from their website one time.

Although Nine is probably a better alternative because it does have the app level pin & wipe function rather than completely bypassing exchange security.

I can recommend NINE, it works great and their support is also pretty good, I received a reply almost instantly when I reported a minor bug and it was fixed within a day.

on stock, i don't think so. it is governed by the administrators of your email account. is it an exchange account?
