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.

Data Types

For each ownership type (Corporate - Dedicated, Corporate - Shared, Employee Owned, and Unassigned) select whether to Collect and Display (in the Console), Collect and Do Not Display, or Do Not Collect for the listed data type.

These data types include the following.

  • GPS
  • Telecom
  • Applications
  • Profiles
  • Network


For the remote commands you want administrators to be able to perform, select whether to Allow, Allow With User Permission, or Prevent. 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 the data types presented. 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.

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.
