Android EMM allows schools the ability to exercise full management control over Android devices. There are two enrolment options available for these types of devices: fully managed (Android 5.0+) and managed profile (Android 5.1+)
Enrolling Fully managed devices
The Fully managed enrolment option is for school-owned devices. Schools can enforce the full range of management policies on the entire device.
Please Note: In order to fully manage your devices, we advise that you will need to perform a factory reset. This is highly recommended, as it will provide the highest level of control over your devices.
Enrolling managed profile devices
Home-owned or BYOD devices can be set up with a work profile—a feature built into Android 5.1+ that allows work apps and data to be stored in a separate, self-contained space within a device*. A student can continue to use their device as normal; all their personal apps and data remain on the device's primary profile.
Please Note: This option should be used for home-owned devices which cannot be factory reset.
In this scenario, Mobile Guardian will only have control over the "work" side of the device, while the user will still be able to use the "personal" side of the device without restriction.
