Default Any Wifi Tether option Unrooted?

I have a phone from my company but for the MDM client , Airwatch, to work, It cannot be rooted.
I am one of the Admins for the MDM console so I can reset my status after I've flagged it. So I can root it, do changes, but then need to unroot to enable emails again.
I've yet to figure out how/where to Whitelist my device fully for root detection in the meantime.

1. Goto google.com/android/devicemanager and locate your phone.
2. Click "Lock" and chose a new number password.
3. Type the new password on your phone and it will unlock.
4. Now it should let your change the lockscreen to anything, and foxfi will continue to work

Still working after restarting phone and using Foxfi

Ok, I will assume by mentioning Foxfi still works on the last step, that one of my first steps should be to get Foxfi?

FoxFi does work and the process to make it so that you can choose the lock screen type that you want (the steps he documented) works as well.
