Access UoD information and email via phone or tablet?

The Company Portal App gives you a way to make sure that University information is safe and secure when you use your mobile devices. By installing the App your device will meet recommended security standards, giving you the assurance that should your device be lost or stolen it is unlikely that any of your or the University’s information is accessible by others.

  • The app is required for any corporate (University-provided) devices that you use.
  • If you would like to use your own devices for University work ensure that you do so securely by installing the Company Portal App.

What will the app do?

The app confirms whether your mobile device has a four-digit pin (minimum) in place and encryption enabled. If either is absent, you are prompted to enforce the missing element. Once passed, your mobile device compliance is reported to the University.

Take control if your device is lost or stolen

With the app, the online Self-Manage Portal becomes available to you. This allows you to self-reset/restore your device back to factory settings, preventing unknown users accessing any of your or the University’s data that may have been stored.  

Uninstall your personal device

Uninstall the Company Portal by simply accessing the self-manage portal or in the app and removing your device.  After removing, you may wish to delete the app from your device. Without the app, you will be restricted to accessing your work email and calendar via Office 365 in your web browser. If you access information this way you must not in any circumstances download or store data (including email attachments) on your devices.
