We all use our phones for a lot more than sending messages and making the occasional call.
Mobile use among staff is on the rise, with most using their personal devices for work now and then. You see it all the time!
The downside of using a personal mobile device to access your business data is that if it gets breached, that information could be accessed by someone who has access to that mobile device.
Most of the time, your IT Department won't have control over personal devices and the ability to lock them down, or remotely wipe them.
This upcoming Android 13 is sure to be exciting for businesses, as it brings with it many new features and improvements.
Google released more information about the new features on its latest operating system for mobile devices.
Many features are aimed at keeping business data safe and secure, while also helping your people maintain a good work/life balance.
With this new update, you can easily create separate work and personal profiles on your Android devices. This makes managing your profiles even easier.
Your team can choose which profile they open their apps in. This includes the default profile, or any other profiles that you create for your team.
Some employees might prefer to watch training videos on their computer instead of through the YouTube app, which would not affect their personal viewing history.
IT administrators will benefit from more control over how business devices are used, as well as the ability to monitor security logs for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and passwords. They'll also be able to install security patches faster.
Your employees will appreciate the added security that encrypted profiles provide.
There will be separate photo galleries for business and personal photos; improved Lost Mode to help find lost devices and protect data is now available on ChromeOS. This feature uses end-to-end encryption when using the new ChromeOS integration feature.
If you have a Google device, you should already have access to Android 13. Other Android devices can expect to receive the update in the coming weeks.
