SCEM: UU smartphone (iOS)

In order to use your mobile phone or tablet to access UU Office apps (Outlook, Teams, OneDrive, Word, etc.) and your UU data you will have to install the Company portal app.

Your phone or tablet has to be:

  • A recent iOS version (13 or higher)
  • Set up with a 6 digit pincode
  • Protected with 2FA

The UU sees these apps as business apps, these will be affected by the restrictions below:

  1. Microsoft Outlook
  2. Microsoft OneDrive
  3. Microsoft Word
  4. Microsoft Excel
  5. Microsoft OneNote
  6. Microsoft Powerpoint
  7. Microsoft Sharepoint
  8. Microsoft Edge
  9. NetIQ
  10. Microsoft Authenticator
  11. Adobe Reader
  12. Microsoft To-Do


The following conditions and restrictions apply to devices with an Apple iOS operating system:

  • The copying, (cutting/pasting) of business data to personal apps is not possible;
  • The copying, (cutting/pasting) of business data between business apps is always possible;
  • The saving of business documents is only possible in Microsoft Onedrive or Sharepoint;
  • The saving of business documents on your own phone or tablet is not possible;
  • After 30 minutes (of not using a business app) the PIN will have to be entered again to be able to open business apps.

If you’ve already installed Office 365 apps to reach business data (like your UU-mail), those apps won’t be able to reach UU-data after the installation of Intune. After this you will use the apps that are installed via Intune. This changes itself after the installation.
