When you activate a device, you associate the device with BlackBerry UEM so that you can manage devices and users can access work data on their devices.
When a device is activated, you can send IT policies and profiles to control the available features and manage the security of work data. You can also assign apps for the user to install. Depending on how much control the selected activation type allows, you may also be able to protect the device by restricting access to certain data, remotely setting passwords, locking the device, or deleting data.
You can assign activation types to accommodate the requirements of devices owned by your organization and devices owned by users. Different activation types give you different degrees of control over the work and personal data on devices, ranging from full control over all data to specific control over work data only.
