Create work profile for private Android devices (BYOD)

You can make a work profile available to your Android users on their Android devices. This embedding method is primarily intended for devices that are privately owned by the users. A clear separation exists here between the work profile and the privately used area on the device.  As administrator, you only have access to the work profile, but not to the private part of the device.

The work profile is visually well differentiated from the user´s private area. All work apps are identifiable by a briefcase icon (left illus.). The work profile can be disabled at any time by the users themselves (middle illus.). Additionally, the user can personally decide whether the location of the device may be determined, or not (right illus.).

Generating a user password (only for Cortado MDM)

Note! Cortado Server users do not need a user password. They use their domain password instead.

To enroll the devices with Cortado MDM, users need their email address and a password. Users must generate the password themselves with the help of the invitation email. You can find more information about the invitation mail here.

Registering mobile devices

The user can configure the device themselves. Cortado MDM users can find out how this works here. Cortado Server users receive an invitation email with a link to the User Self Service Portal. There they can register their device.

Alternatively, you can configure the work profile together with the user, in the management console.

  • If Cortado Server is being used, proceed as described here
  • When using Cortado MDM, select the user in the management console under Administration→ Users (left arrow in illus.) and then click on Enroll Device (middle arrow in illus.)Then click on Android (right arrow in illus.).

  • Then select Work Profile (arrow in illus.).

You will be redirected to our registration pages. Now proceed as described here.

Note for Cortado MDM users! Alternatively, you can also integrate the devices via Administration→ Devices, by clicking on the plus button (left arrow in illus.). There you also first select the desired user(s) (right arrow in illus.) and then Enroll Device (lower arrow in illus.). Then you can select the platform and the method as above.
