Accepting a mobile device invitation from an Android device

Important Update: Please read our release note about important updates and limited functionality of our Mobile Device Management solution with the launch of our new Device Management for Apple (DMA). We recommend you enroll your iOS devices with DMA. Read more about migrating from MDM to DMA.

Android mobile device users must accept an invitation to be managed by N-able N-central.

  1. Click the hyperlink provided in the invitation message.
  2. In the browser window, click Step 1: Download and install the Android Agent link.
  3. In the Google Play screen, click N-able N-central MDM Agent.
  4. Click Install.
  5. In the App permissions screen, click Accept.
  6. In the Remote Management screen, click Install.
  7. When prompted to install a Remote Management Profile, click OK.
