Workspace ONE UEM enables you to define your profile with a Geofencing Area. A geofence area limits the use of the device to specific areas including corporate offices, school buildings, and retail department stores. You can think of a geofence area as a virtual perimeter for a real-world geographic area.
For example, a geofence area with a 1-mile radius can apply to your office, while a much larger geofence area can apply approximately to an entire state. Once you have defined a geofence area you can apply it to profiles, SDK applications, and Workspace ONE UEM apps such as the VMware Content Locker, and more.
Enabling a Geofence Area is a two-step process.
- Geofencing is available for Android and iOS devices.
- Remember that while Geofencing is combined with another payload to enable security profiles based on location, consider having only one payload per profile.
