Setting up Email on Android for Faculty/Staff

Faculty and Staff can set up their email on a mobile device running Android operating systems.

  • Require a screen lock for idle timeout on your mobile device.
  • Wipe a lost or stolen device.

Additionally, this application gives Android users with version 2.2+ the ability to:  **

  • Reset PIN

  • Lock Device
  • Locate your device
  • Wipe your device
