If your deployment has organization groups with multiple ownership types, you can prompt users to identify their ownership type during enrollment. Careful consideration should be used before allowing users to choose their own ownership type.

You can always update the ownership type on individual devices later but 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.


While simple, this approach assumes that every user correctly selects the appropriate ownership type applicable to their device. If a personal device user selects the Corporate-Owned type in error, their device is now subject to policies and profiles that normally do not apply to personal devices. This erroneous selection can have serious legal implications regarding user privacy.


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