Prompt Users to Identify Ownership Type

If your deployment has organization groups with multiple ownership types, you can prompt users to identify their ownership type during enrollment.

  1. Navigate to Devices > Device Settings > Devices & Users > General > Enrollment and choose the Optional Prompt tab.
  2. Select Prompt for Device Ownership Type. During enrollment, users are prompted to select their ownership type.
  3. Select Save.


While simple, this approach assumes that every user correctly selects the appropriate ownership type applicable to their device.

If a personal device user chooses the Corporate-Owned type, their device is now subject to policies and profiles that normally do not apply. This erroneous selection can have serious legal implications regarding user privacy.

While you can always update the ownership type later, it is safer and more secure to make a list of corporate devices. Then enroll the corporate-owned devices separately and later, set the default ownership type to Employee Owned.
