Control data collection in supported VMware productivity applications with custom settings. Display your organization's privacy policy in the app and let users decide whether to share their productivity app data.

Configurable Privacy Policies

Privacy configurations consist of key-value pairs entered in the Workspace ONE UEM console. The default SDK settings power these configurations, and they provide the listed controls.

  • Display your company's privacy policy within the productivity application so that users can review it and know the company's exact policy.
  • To allow users to decide if they want to share their feature usage analytics, display a Data Sharing page in the productivity application. Sharing feature usage analytics helps VMware improve existing features and develop new ones.
  • If you use VMware Workspace ONE Intelligence, you can share the diagnostic data for productivity applications that is collected from these systems. Sharing diagnostic data helps to analyze and troubleshoot problems with applications and your enterprise mobility management environment.
