Welcome to the post that shows how to enroll your Android device in Microsoft Intune. In one of my recent post we saw configuring Android for work binding in Intune. If you are new to Intune, you can follow my Intune setup guides. To manage Android devices your organization must have Microsoft Intune installed. When you enroll user’s Android device, they get access to company email, files, applications and other resources. The IT department manages control or access to these files, applications etc.
Furthermore the IT admin must set up your account before you can login to the Intune Company Portal app. If you are enrolling Samsung Android device with Knox enabled, you will see some new screens which are not listed below. However it shouldn’t be too tough as the setup instructions are clear.
