    It is not possible as such on generic Android devices, However, it can be achieved on Samsung SAFE and Android Enterprise (formerly Android for Work), the Samsung’s and Google’s Enterprise platforms respectively.

    Hexnode MDM supports most of the advanced restrictions available for Samsung SAFE devices but the ‘Accounts set up restriction’ has not yet been released. It will be available real soon.

    The Android for work integration has also not yet been made available. We are busy adding bells and whistles to a major Android release to be rolled out in a couple of months.

    Stay tuned for release updates and more.

  • Hi Majed,

    Thank you for reaching out to us.

    The users will be able to use their personal email accounts on the device even after enrolling with Hexnode. You can even allow users to add their accounts after the devices are enrolled. Make sure that the restrictions, “Modify Accounts/Users”, (supported on Samsung Knox, Android Enterprise Profile Owner and Android Enterprise Device Owner) and/or “Add Users” (supported on Samsung Knox 1.1+), are enabled in the policies applied to the devices.

    To ensure proper separation of personal data and work data, you can enroll your Android devices in Android Enterprise as Profile Owners.  Do check out our help doc to know more about restrictions on Android Enterprise devices.
