Enable 
BlackBerry Secure Connect Plus

To allow devices to use 
BlackBerry Secure Connect Plus
, you must enable 
BlackBerry Secure Connect Plus
 in an enterprise connectivity profile and assign the profile to users and groups.
When the enterprise connectivity profile is applied to the device after activation, 
BlackBerry UEM

BlackBerry Connectivity
 app on the device (for 
Android Enterprise
 devices, the app is installed automatically from 
Google Play
; for 
iOS
 devices, the app is installed automatically from the 
App Store
). On 
BlackBerry 10
 devices, the app is hidden and does not require user interaction.
BlackBerry
 releases new versions of the app to support new features and enhancements. For instructions on upgrading the app, and to learn about the latest known and fixed issues, see the

  • If you are troubleshooting a connection issue with an 
    iOS
    Android Enterprise
