Android Enterprise Work Profile Migration

Starting Sept. 19, Android devices enrolled in the Android Mobile Management System with the Workspace ONE/AirWatch (WS1) Hub app will be prompted to migrate to the Android Enterprise work profile or defer it to a later time. No data loss will occur, and your device should not require a restart. Earlier this year, Workspace ONE ended support for “legacy-enrolled”  Android phones, requiring us to move those devices to work profile. Individuals with mobile devices that require migration will receive email notifications. 

To maintain compliance with your Android device, you must migrate to the Android Enterprise work profile before Oct. 1, 2022.

Work Profile

A feature of Android Enterprise work profile. Android work profile allows you to separate personal and work-related applications, with the option to silence work applications.
Works apps will be marked with a briefcase icon and located in your work profile. To access your work apps:
  1. Swipe up from the bottom of your screen to the top.
  2. Tap the "Work" tab.
  3. Tap the app that you want to open.


You’ll no longer see a Stanford app catalog in work profile, except on older devices. Instead, open the work profile Play Store to view and install Stanford apps.

Outlook App

 Your device’s default email application for Stanford email is not compatible with work profile, and you will lose access by Oct. 1, 2022. You can use Stanford Webmail (accessed via Web browser) or install the Microsoft Outlook app.
