Android Quick Start Set Up

Setting Up Your Android Device 

There are two options for setting up your Android device: using a Google account or using the Corporate Account. If you have a personal Google account set up on your device already, you can use the Corporate Account option to keep your email account separated. If you would like a unified inbox with all of your email in one place, use the Google account option. 

For faculty and staff, we recommend installing the Google Device Policy app on your Android device. This free app is available on the Android Marketplace and allows lost or stolen devices to be located via GPS or remotely wiped in emergencies. Note: you are the administrator for your personal devices.
