This article covers what Sophos Central tamper protection is, what changes require a password, and the request process to obtain one.

 

Tamper Protection

Sophos Central tamper protection prevents unauthorized users and malware from changing, uninstalling, or otherwise modifying the state of Sophos client.
 

What changes require a tamper protection password?

Any changes made in the "Settings" tab will require a Sohpos tamper protection password. Additionally, you will need a tamper protection password to uninstall the Sophos agent from the machine. This should typically be done by a TSP or Local Support person troubleshooting an issue with you.
