Un-enrolling Your Android Device

You are now going to un-enroll the Android device from Workspace ONE UEM.

NOTE: The term Enterprise Wipe does not mean reset or completely wipe your device. This only removes the MDM Profiles, Policies, and content which the Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub app controls.

NOTE: The Enterprise Wipe will NOT remove the Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub application from the device as this was downloaded manually before Workspace ONE UEM had control of the device.

1. Enterprise Wipe (un-enroll) your Android device

Enterprise Wipe (un-enroll) your iOS device

Enterprise Wipe will remove all the settings and content that were pushed to the device when it was enrolled.  It will not affect anything that was on the device prior to enrollment.

After selecting Enterprise Wipe, you will be prompted to enter your Security PIN which you set after your logged into the console (1234).

    NOTE: If 1234 does not work, then you provided a different Security PIN when you first logged into the Workspace ONE UEM Console.  Use the value you specified for your Security PIN.

  1. On your device, open the Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub application.

NOTE: Depending upon Internet connectivity of the device and responsiveness of the lab infrastructure, this could take a couple of minutes or more if there is excessive traffic occurring within the Hands On Lab environment.

4. Confirming the Device was Un-Enrolled (Console)

  1. Click the Refresh button on the Device List View screen.
  2. Check if the device is showing Unenrolled for the Enrollment status.  If not, continue to refresh the page until the device shows as Unenrolled.
