To use the UEM console to create the QR code, see the Enrollment Configuration Wizard (Devices > Lifecycle > Staging > List View > Configure Enrollment).

    • For Android 9.0+ devices, the camera will open automatically after you complete the six taps.

  2. Connect to Wi-Fi and the setup wizard automatically downloads a QR code reader. The QR code reader app automatically starts once complete. On Android 8.0 and 9.0 devices, you can use mobile connectivity. On Android 10 or later, Wi-Fi is required.

  3. Scan your QR code. For Android 9.0+ devices, use the QR code option on the camera to scan. You can use any online QR code generator, such as Web Toolkit Online.
