Note! Users of fully managed devices will find the Cortado app on there devices.
After successfully configuration, you will find the Cortado app on your mobile device.

- Open the app with the app icon (arrow in illus.).
- On the start page of the app you will receive a status message about the management of your work profile and/or your company devices:
- If the traffic light displays green, then the work profile and the device are running correctly, and any existing policies have been implemented (left illus.).
- If the traffic light displays yellow, the last time the device was updated was more than 48 hours ago (middle illus.).
- If the traffic light displays red, a policy is unable to be enforced. In the example, an insufficiently strong password has been set for a device with a work profile (right illus.).
- If necessary, change the password for the work profile or for the device.
- Tap on Update now, to refresh the status message.
If a policy is unable to be implemented, the apps in the work profile (left arrow) or on the fully managed device (right arrow) will be locked.
