Android for Work

An option that enables Android users to separate business and personal activities in their phones and tablets. Introduced with Android's Lollipop Version 5, it can also be added to Version 4 devices. Android for Work creates a container that functions like a dedicated corporate device. The company's network administrator is able to add and delete data and apps, but only from the work container and not the personal side. See Android and Android versions.
