Whitelisting messenger-app

Hi guys,


Goal: Whitelisting messenger app in mobiles but deny facebook

Do you have any problems in whitelisting messenger app in a mobile? It seems creating a policy and allowing facebook-chat is not working.

But if i included facebook-base it will work. Unfortunately clients will be able to use the facebook app

If you have work around kindly comment. Thanks

Re: Whitelisting messenger-app

Due to the App-dependecies, I thought that Facebook-base was needed for Facebook Messenger to work. 

I understand the ask.. but because they are soo closely tied, it is going to be difficult to do so. 


But I would like to know if others have been able to do this or not.

Stay Secure,
End of line

Thanks for the reply sir.. I kinda understand now the app-dependencies. I hope palo alto will have updates in the applications. These mobile apps are uncontrollable these days.
