Thanks for the updates. Your website is always a go-to resource for me when it comes to the topics related to Android Enterprise.

Thank you!

This website has been the only resource that can help clarify the inner workings of Android Enterprise, keep up the great work.

Working as a mobile device admin for an organization that uses MobileIron, we’re currently working through a conversion of Samsung devices on Android 10 moving from Device Admin to COPE. MobileIron says they’re still finalizing the details with Google to make the needed updates to their DPC, regarding Android 11. Initial details suggest there may be an option within their Mobile@Work DPC to migrate existing COPE devices to the new configuration (which based on your article sounds to be enhanced work profile).

Really hoping this all pans out for the better. Not having full device control with FRP would be a huge security/privacy issue for us & having to potentially switch everyone to Work Managed devices would make the user experience miserable, and would most likely push our smaller Android user base to iOS.
