Activate a device using a QR code

If your organization permits it, you can activate your
iOS

Android
device using a
QR Code
instead of an activation password. When you activate a device with a
QR Code
, you don't need to type any information.
You need a
QR Code
image. You can find it in the activation email from your administrator, or you can create one in
BlackBerry UEM Self-Service
. See Create an activation password or QR Code.

    BlackBerry UEM Client
    app. For

    Android
    , download the app from
    Google Play

    UEM Client
    .

    QR Code
    that you received in the activation email or that you generated in
    BlackBerry UEM Self-Service

To verify that the activation process completed successfully, you can perform one of the following actions:
