Disabling “Add an App” Feature for End-Users

Bitium recommends that org admins allow end users to add any of their own apps by default. Doing so allows admins to gain visibility into apps employees are using that admins may not know about. It also gives admins the ability to take action if they wish to gain corporate control over these “shadow IT” apps. Turning the “Add an App” setting off takes away this control and makes it more likely that users will use the app outside of Bitium.

That said, Bitium offers the ability to disable this feature:

  1. As an admin, click “Manage [Org]” and then go to “Settings.”
  2. In the Settings menu, select “Organizational Settings.”
  3. Find the “Allow any user to add apps” setting and flip the toggle to “OFF.”
