Set up Android company device for business and private use (COPE)

In this article, we will show you how to perform the initial configuration of company-owned Android devices. This setup method is intended for devices that will be used for both business and personal purposes (Company Owned/Personally Enabled). You will find more information on setup method selection here.

Your company has provided you with an Android device that is either new and unused or has been reset to factory default settings and has at least Android version 11.

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:

You can now start setting up the device. The device must have been reset to factory default settings for this. 

Note! Please skip the 3rd point of these instructions if your administrator has informed you that your device has already been preconfigured with Zero-Touch or Samsung Knox Mobile Enrollment. Continue with the 4th point (scanning the QR code) instead. 
  • Tap six times on the same spot in the welcome screen.

  • If your administrator has set this up, you will now be automatically connected to the company WLAN. This only works if you are within range of this WLAN. Clarify this with your administrator if necessary.
  • If no WLAN has been preconfigured, connect to your WLAN or mobile network yourself instead and start the setup.
  • Follow the setup steps on the device. Verify your company and agree to manage the device.

Then add your personal Google account for the private area of your device. Your admin will not have access to the privately used apps.

After the configuration the device will have a business and a private area. Your private apps and data can’t be viewed by your company.  The work apps are identified by a briefcase icon and are thus clearly differentiated from the private apps. The work profile, as well as the localisation function can be disabled by at any time.
