Android and Windows Phone will start encrypting data on your phone after enrolment, this may take some time depending on the amount of data and available hardware resources.

If you keep experiencing problems with performance or unusual behaviour after the initial enrolment period then please un-enrol and de-crypt your device. It may be that the device you are using is unsuitable for your use case or may need some maintenance.

To un-enrol load the Company Portal App, sign-in if prompted. Go to 'My Devices', select the device you are using and hit the Rubbish Bin icon.
