Review Samsung Android Work Environment configuration settings to determine if Share Via List is disallowed.

This validation procedure is performed on both the management tool Administration Console and the Samsung Android device.

On the management tool, in the Work Environment restrictions section, verify that "Share Via List" is set to "Disallow".

On the Samsung Android device, attempt to share by long pressing a file in the Work Environment and tapping "Share".

If on the management tool "Share Via List" is not set to "Disallow", or on the Samsung Android device the user is able to share, this is a finding.
