Set up a work profile on a private Android device


Open Cortado email invitation

Setting up work profile


Set up a work profile on your private Android device in order to keep business apps and data separated from private apps and data. Your company manages the business apps and data. In doing so, they have no access to the private part of your device. A clear separation between the workspace and the privately used area on your device is guaranteed. You can find more information about that on the Google support pages.

Your company only has access to your work profile. Only the setting and strength of a device password can be determined by your company, through the use of a policy. This serves to protect the work profile. 

You can decide for yourself whether your location may or may not be used in your work profile (arrow in left illus.).

Additionally, you can delete the work profile from the device at any time (arrow in right illus.).

Open Cortado email invitation

Your administrator has created a Cortado account for you. You consequently received an email from Cortado. (If necessary, also check the Spam folder.)

Open the email invitation:

  • Cortado Server users click the User Portal link and then proceed as described in section Setting up work profile
  • Cortado MDM users click Set password now. They will then be redirected to the Cortado website.

  • Set a password for your Cortado account and click on Continue to confirm.

Setting up work profile

  • Now click on Enroll New Device (no illus.). 
  • On the next page, select Android Device Select.

  • Retain the selected option (BYOD) (arrow in illus.).

  • Download the Cortado app from the Google Play Store and open the app (left ilus.).
  • In the welcome screen tap on Next (right illus.).

  • Scan the QR code from the enrollment page (not the code in this article.) with the app (right illus.).

  • Cortado MDM users log in to the app with their email address and the password you created in the step above. Cortado Server users use their company email address and domain password instead.
  • Then tap on Add new device (right arrow).

All the information concerning your work profile can be found in the Cortado app. You will find more information on using the app here.
