Configure private Android devices (Cortado Server only)

The type of MDM profile configuration used on Android devices is dependent on whether the device is owned privately or by the company. Company-owned devices will be fully managed by your administrator. This prepares the devices to a state whereby you only need to enter your email address and the domain password. On private Android devices, on the other hand, a work profile can be installed. This type of configuration guarantees a clear separation between the work space and the private use area on your device. Your administrator will inform you whether you should install a work profile on your device. All apps within this profile are managed by your administrator and remain separate from your private accounts, apps and data. Your administrator has no access to the private section of your device. 

Note! The device must be encrypted. If it is not, either you or the user will be prompted to encrypt the device during the configuration.
