The Privacy settings page lets you define how device and user information are handled in the Workspace ONE UEM console. This is particularly useful in bring your own device (BYOD) deployments.

  • Current Setting – Select whether to Inherit or Override the displayed settings. Inherit means use the settings of the current organization group's parent OG, while Override enables the settings for editing so you can modify the current OG's settings directly.
  • Select whether to Collect and Display (in the Console), Collect and Do Not Display, or Do Not Collect for the listed data.
  • For the remote commands you want administrators to be able to perform, select whether to Allow, Allow With User Permission, or Prevent.

    For more information on both of these, including privacy best practices, see Configure Privacy Settings.


For Commands, select whether the remote action will be available on Corporate-Dedicated, Corporate-Shared, Employee Owned, or Unassigned to devices.

These commands are available for Android and/or Windows Phone devices. The asterisk beside the command denotes which device.

User Information

For User Information, select whether to Display or Do Not Display in the UEM console information for First Name, Last Name, Phone Number, and Email Accounts.

If a field is set to Do Not Display, then it displays as "Private" wherever it appears in the UEM console. This means you are not be able to search for fields you set to Do Not Display.

Do Not Disturb

Do Not Disturb ModeEnable or Disable this mode.

Do Not Disturb (DND) provides a clean and automated way to halt profile, content and application changes on enrolled devices for a set window of time directly from the UEM console. Integral MDM commands such as device wipe, enterprise wipe, and clear passcode still function when DND is enabled and the device is in DND mode.

DND mode is particularly useful for devices that are used or displayed in front of customers or guests. Admin messages, app updates and content changes may confuse end-users or disrupt demos and walkthroughs, so the ability to pause any changes allows uninterrupted usage. Once the Do Not Disturb period ends, all queued updates and commands are pushed down to the device automatically.

User Friendly Privacy Notice

Enable this option to display a user-friendly privacy notice to your end-users after they enroll a device. For more information, see Privacy Notice.

  • Select to Enable or Disable the User Friendly Privacy Notice on the device.

    • When Enabled, you may choose Yes (display a privacy notice) or No (do not display a privacy notice) for each ownership level: Employee Owned, Corporate - Dedicated, Corporate - Shared, and Unknown. You must create a privacy notice before you assign ownership types to receive the notice.
  • Child Permission – Select the available behavior of child organization groups that exist below the currently selected organization group. Inherit only means child OGs are only allowed to inherit these settings. Override only means they override the settings, and Inherit or Override means you can choose to inherit or override settings in child OGs that exist below the currently selected OG.
