Apply configuration profiles

Microsoft Intune includes settings and features you can enable or disable for users and devices using configuration profiles.

Configuration profiles are used to manage settings on devices. They allow administrators to enforce security policies, set up email accounts, configure Wi-Fi access, and more.

Configuration profiles are also applied to user accounts to define their access and permissions within an organization's network and services.
