Okta Mobility Management End-User Setup


The Okta Mobility Management (OMM) program secures your mobile device and configures it to access your work email, calendar, contacts, and applications. During enrollment you are prompted to set a PIN or password on your mobile device. The Okta policy allows for a 4-digit pin.

Your privacy is very important to Okta. Corporate data is protected while your personal data remains separate and not accessible to your organization. We only manage information that is required to secure and protect corporate data.

The following list shows what we can and cannot manage:

What OMMAn acronym for Okta Mobility Management. OMM enables you to manage your users' mobile devices, applications, and data. Your users enroll in the service and can then download and use managed apps from the Apps Store. Managed apps are typically work-related, such as Box or Expensify. As an administrator, you can remove managed apps and associated data from users' devices at any time. You can configure policies, such as data sharing controls, on any of your managed apps. See Configuring Okta Mobility Management for more information. Can See What OMM Cannot See

**For personal apps, OMM can only see the names, but none of the content of the apps.

Okta Mobility Management can deprovision only your work accounts and work applications, and only in accord with a special request with IT. If your device is stolen, you can factory-reset it to erase all of its contents. Note that your IT department can also factory-reset your device.

The following procedures assume that you are currently an Okta user and assigned to a group that includes a mobile policy.

Adding New Apps to your Device

When a new app is made available for you, that app automatically appears in the Mobile Apps Store on your device. Click INSTALL to install.

Note that you can uninstall a managed app at any time. Okta Mobility Management does not prevent them from doing so.
