Article summary

Android Enterprise devices offer a quick and easy way to enroll your devices right when they are unboxed or after a factory reset, in the form of six-taps and scanning a QR Code. With this method of enrollment, IT admins can also set up a work profile on corporate devices while using them for personal activities.
