Disable mobile device PIN policy

By default Exchange 2010 has a policy requiring mobile devices (iPhones/iPads and Android Devices) to have a pin code before the account can be setup. The following steps outline removing this policy:

  • Launch the Exchange Management Console
  • Expand Microsoft Exchange On-Premises
  • Expand Organization Configuration
  • Select Client Access
  • Change to the Exchange ActiveSync Mailbox Policies Tab
  • Right click the policy named Default and select Policies
  • Select the Password Tab
  • Uncheck the require password checkbox
  • Click Ok to Save.

Now when you setup a device you won’t be prompted to create a pin code
