Enrollment using ADO

ADO stands for Android device user. Seqrite mSuite requires Android Debug Bridge (ADB) to enable Device user Mode on the device. Thus, ADB helps to set a bridge between the computer and the connected device, and also perform multiple device actions, which in turn helps to set Seqrite mSuite as Android device user (ADO).

When enrolling with ADO:

  • You must configure ADB on your computer.

  • Your supported Android devices must be of 5.0 or later versions.

After the ADB is installed on your computer, connect your device having Seqrite mSuite installed on it and run the following command:

adb shell dpm set-device-owner com.seqrite.client/.components.receivers.MainDevice AdminReceiver\

Note:
Make sure there are no accounts configured on your device. This option is available only for mSuite only.

When you receive a success message, the device is considered as a Device user. Further, you can continue with the device enrollment process.
