Activation type
Description
MDM controls
This activation type provides basic device management using device controls made available by
iOS
and
iPadOS
. A separate work space is not installed on the device and there is no added security for work data.
You can control the device using commands and IT policies. During activation, users must install a mobile device management profile on the device.
To specify whether
BlackBerry UEM
can limit activation by device ID, select "Allow only approved device IDs".
User privacy
This activation type provides basic control of devices while making sure that users' personal data remains private. A separate container is not installed on the device, and no added security for work data is provided. Devices can use services such as Find my Phone and Root Detection, but administrators cannot control device policies.
For SIM-based licensing, you must select "Allow access to SIM card and device hardware information to enable SIM-based licensing" in the activation profile. Users must install an MDM profile that can access only the SIM card and device hardware information that is required to check if an appropriate SIM license is available (for example, ICCID and IMEI).
This activation type is not supported for
Apple TV
devices.
When you allow
User privacy
activations, you select the profiles that you want manage on the device based on the needs of your organization. You can choose any of the following:
  • Allow access to SIM card and device hardware information to enable SIM-based licensing: This option specifies whether
    UEM
    can access SIM card and device hardware information, such as ICCID and IMEI, to check if an appropriate SIM license is available.
  • Allow App management: This option specifies whether you want to install or remove work apps on the device and display a list of installed work apps in the user details screen. You can also specify whether to allow app shortcuts.
  • Allow IT Policy management: This option specifies whether you want to apply a limited set of IT policy rules to the device (password policies, allow screenshots, allow documents from managed sources in unmanaged destinations, and allow documents from unmanaged sources in managed destinations).
  • Allow Email profile management: This option specifies whether to apply the Email profile settings that are assigned to the user to the device.
  • Allow
    Wi-Fi
    profile management: This option specifies whether to apply the
    Wi-Fi
    profile settings that are assigned to the user to the device.
  • Allow VPN profile management: This option specifies whether to apply the VPN profile settings that are assigned to the user to the device.
User privacy - User enrollment
This activation type can be used for
iOS
and
iPadOS
devices to ensure that user data is kept private and separated from work data. A separate work space is installed on the device for work apps and the native Notes,
iCloud
Drive, Mail (attachments and full email bodies), Calendar (attachments), and
iCloud Keychain
apps.
This activation type enables app management, IT policy management, email profiles,
Wi-Fi
profiles, and per-app VPN. Administrators can manage work data (for example, delete work data) without affecting personal data.
This activation type is supported on unsupervised
iPhone
and
iPad
devices.
Device registration for
BlackBerry 2FA
only
This activation type supports the
BlackBerry 2FA
solution for devices that
UEM
does not manage. This activation type does not provide any device management or controls, but it allows devices to use the
BlackBerry 2FA
feature. To use this activation type, you must also assign the
BlackBerry 2FA
profile to users.
When a device is activated, you can view limited device information in the management console, and you can deactivate the device using a command.
This activation type is supported only for
Microsoft Active Directory
users. It is not supported for
Apple TV
devices.
