Set up a work profile on a private Android device (Cortado MDM only)

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.).
