Work apps

Work apps are apps that can be installed onto a device that is enrolled with Sophos Mobile using Android enterprise device owner or profile owner mode.

Note For profile owner mode, work apps are installed inside the work profile and are marked with a briefcase badge.

You must perform the following tasks in managed Google Play and in Sophos Mobile to make work apps available to your users:

  1. In managed Google Play, you select the apps for your organization. To do this:
    • Approve the app.
    • Purchase app licenses.
    • Accept the app permissions.

    See Approve work app.

  2. In Sophos Mobile, you configure the app. To do this:
    • Define the location of the app in the managed Google Play Store app on the users’ devices.
    • For apps that support it, configure custom app settings.
    • For paid apps, assign users a license for the app.
