Workspace ONE Express and Express+ customers can configure location settings at various points in time.

During Express Setup

During the Express Setup process, one of the questions asked is Do you want to collect device Location data?

If you respond No, then no location data is collected for any device that enrolls into Workspace ONE Express or Express+.

If you respond Yes, then at enrollment time, the device end user is prompted whether they want location data collected. If the user declines, then no location data is collected. If the user accepts, then location data is collected but only for corporate-owned devices. Location data is never collected for employee-owned devices.

After Express Setup

You can configure location settings after the Express Setup process by reentering the Express Setup page. Follow these steps.

  1. Navigate to Getting Started > Setup.
  2. If not already selected, select the Survey tab. You are not required to rerun the entire setup.
  3. Scroll down to the Location data question and make your new selection: From Yes to No or from No to Yes.
  4. Select Save & Continue.

Any changes you make to the location settings take effect immediately. The one exception to this immediate effect is the following scenario.

  • During Express Setup, assume you set your preference not to collect Location Data and subsequently, many iOS devices are enrolled. Later, you decide to change this setting to Collect Location Data; any iOS devices currently enrolled must re-enroll after the settings change for the collection of location data to take effect.

    This scenario impacts iOS devices only.
