Create work profile for private Android devices (BYOD)

You can make a work profile available to your Android users on their Android devices. This embedding method is primarily intended for devices that are privately owned by the users. A clear separation exists here between the work profile and the privately used area on the device.  As administrator, you only have access to the work profile, but not to the private part of the device.

Note! Create up to four additional administrator accounts to configure Cortado MDM.

The work profile is visually well differentiated from the user´s private area. All work apps are identifiable by a briefcase icon (left illus.). The work profile can be disabled at any time by the users themselves (middle illus.). Additionally, the user can personally decide whether the location of the device may be determined, or not (right illus.).

Note! Users imported from Microsoft Entra ID use the credentials of their Microsoft account.

To enroll the devices with Cortado MDM, local users need their email address and a password. Users must generate the password themselves with the help of the invitation email. You can find more information about the invitation mail here.

You will then be redirected to the My Cortado login page. The user can log in here with the login data. Now proceed as described here.

Note for Cortado MDM users! Alternatively, you can also integrate the devices via Administration→ Devices, by clicking on the plus button (left arrow in illus.). There you also first select the desired user(s) (right arrow in illus.) and then Enroll Device (lower arrow in illus.). Then you can select the platform and the method as above.
