[Action Needed] – Refresh Old Android Enrollment QR Codes

  • To enroll corporate-owned Android devices, administrators can generate QR codes through the Workspace ONE UEM Console under Devices > Lifecycle > Staging > List View. When setting up an Android device from the factory reset state, end users scan these QR codes to initiate enrollment into Work Managed or Corporate Owned Personally Enabled (COPE) mode.
  • VMware is making changes to enhance the security posture of cloud-based endpoints related to this enrollment method on March 1st, 2023. As a result of this change enrollment using some older QR codes may fail. As a resolution, new QR codes will need to be generated as replacements for affected QR codes. More information about this change can be found in the KB Article.
