Set Android management mode

For Android devices, you can choose between the Android Enterprise and Device administrator (legacy feature) management modes.


Google now deprecates the device administrator management mode and is reducing its range of functions. We recommend that you use the Android Enterprise management mode instead. See Migrate from device administrator to Android Enterprise.

You can’t use the device administrator mode for devices with Android 10 or later.

To set the Android management mode, do as follows:

  1. On the menu sidebar, under SETTINGS, select Setup > Google setup and then the Android tab.
  2. In Management mode, select the management mode for Android devices.
  3. Click Save.

This setting affects which policy types are available in the user interface.

You must set up Android Enterprise for your organization before you can enroll devices. See Set up Android Enterprise - Overview.
