Stuck

I am stuck at download your profile and can’t get pass that to view my email as well it’s frustrating when you can’t use the app
The best
by Valco3326 on 2019/06/11 01:46
Works great, easy to install, easy to understand and easy to manage.
Hate it
by duswl9741 on 2019/06/10 14:36
I don’t see a point of this app. All I want is to get into projects I need to quickly fix from my phone and Gdrive/slides would be keep saying I need to install this Device app. Can’t figure out why it sometimes works (Google apps not asking me to sign in to the GDivice Policy). Wish I can access without having to download this :(.
This is the worst app in history
by fafridi on 2019/06/03 00:25
So I can’t do my work because of this message that keeps on showing up and says to regain access to your work contact your organization admin so please fix this because I contacted my administrator but they didn’t know how to fix this so I don’t know what’s happening or either my administrator is preventing me from using this app or this is just a bug so fix this bug or I’ll contact my administrator for details about why this is happening
Frustrating
by SB91790 on 2019/05/30 00:29
I’m required to have this for my work email. However it keeps telling me to “update” the app, but then the app does not show any available updates, and keeps telling me to contact my admin. Admin has spent hours on the phone with google and I am STILL locked out of my work email and calendar... which is a HUGE problem as I am the assistant director of a small non profit organization and we need everyone to be on the same page.
Stuck in an infinite loop
by eglivin on 2019/05/17 00:26
This app is terrible!!!! I can no longer see my work calendar because it tells me to download the app (which I’ve already done) and then tells me to sign in, then again tells me to download the app. I uninstalled and reinstalled to try and fix it... but it wasn’t successful
Works Great!
by scam submission alert on 2019/05/16 22:02
You need to remove other device MDM profiles for it to work. I had set one up manually and it conflicted. If you are not an admin on the google business account, you may (will) have problems.... you will need to contact your admin... that’s easy if you are the admin. If you are not the admin and trying to install it, then it may or may not be configured. If you haven’t talked to your IT Dept., and you are not the IT Debt, don’t install it. This is for corporate google accounts, not your free gmail account. The purpose is for MDM... so you should probably accept all of the prompts that indicate it can remotely manage and wipe your device... that’s is the point.
Cancer for your phone
by Stuffy McKinnz on 2019/05/07 13:30
Avoid this at all costs if you can. It is way more complicated than it should be. I downloaded it to view my emails from work, but it has never worked properly. It just keeps taking me to a menu to download a bunch of other junk and I still can’t see my emails! Also, every time I use the browser on my phone, it reminds me that I haven’t completed the installation. (You also can’t delete it once it is installed, otherwise I would have removed it by now!) Edit: Now I’m just stuck in a loop trying to install my profile. It asks me to download, I hit accept and then it tells me to review my settings. Then it just kicks me back to the install profile section. What a joke!
Bully application
by googleisbully on 2019/05/05 11:14
I tried to install once and realized the company would have control over my own device, and I didn’t want to. It has been harassing me by prompting to install this thing every time I access google drive
Can’t accept the install
by mc20192019 on 2019/05/03 22:13
I can download the install ... but never accept it:( painful
What the hell is this...
by TheNotoriousSAM on 2019/05/03 14:35
All of a sudden I can’t use google drive, I’ve followed the steps and still can’t use it. I’ve downloaded this is app, which is useless. At this point I cannot use google drive on my phone and going to delete it.
Is Privacy in Google dictionary ?
by Google Privacy on 2019/04/25 19:26
To use google suite with business account, you need to install some profile from this app, which allows remote admin collect and modify data on your phone. Yeah you can say no. But then you cannot check your gmail, get google calendar notification and chat with your coworker using Google Chat. Destroy your business life if you rely on Google suite heavily. I truly understand the concern of the data leakage caused by losing phone. But forcing us to give out our privacy is definitely not a solution .
Install broken, unable to exit infinite loop
by mccshark on 2019/04/25 16:28
Unfortunately I’m forced to use Gmail for my company email. Subsequently I’m now required to use the new Device Policy feature. Unfortunately for me, the install component broken and convoluted. Deleting Gmail, Google Drive and Google Device Manger doesn’t fix the problem. What a waste of a morning, thanks Google!
Not on my device
by kbad57 on 2019/04/25 13:50
I used to be able to do productive things for work on my mobile. Now I’m going to have to dump the gmail app and use some other email client instead. I’ll lose the ability to use docs, sheets, slides, drive, and chat. There is no way I’m giving my employer full reign over my phone. There absolutely needs to be a way to compartmentalize this madness.
Redundant
by SianaRepmad on 2019/04/21 15:55
I don’t see the point of this app because it doesn’t work. I was notified to download this App to access Google drive and other google apps. Every time I try to use it it says “To regain access to your work account, contact your organizer’s admin.” Even though I’m using my personal email! I’ve tried using other emails and the same message will pop up or it would say that I have to sign into G suite, even though I already have. They need to fix this ASAP and the inconvenience is causing delay with attaining assignments for work.
So frustrating
by BeaversDen on 2019/04/13 18:15
It does not work very well with iOS. I keep getting a message saying to contact my admin. I am the admin. It does not verify in sync with the other apps with Google. This is entirely unnecessary to begin with. This should be an article that runs across ALL google platforms. It should not be carried by device. Instead, it should have an iOS API key generated per the USER that self destructs AFTER all google platforms are synchronized with the device. And new APIs generated upon verification requests.
😡
by J18181817161661 on 2019/03/21 17:57
Hold on. The ability to completely wipe my phone? What? No.
Lol

Doesn’t work
by Neda Navidnia on 2019/03/16 14:56
Checking my business emails while I’m out is very important but it has been a week that I don’t get my emails and the app keeps showing a stupid error. Help and support are not doing anything and there is nothing else to do.
Work profile
by TomalT5 on 2019/03/13 19:10
On samsung phones when google device policy is administered, an separate work profile will be created where all the G Suite apps can be found and they are not mixed-up with personal google apps of the device. If your employer want to wipe their data or user enter wrong password several time to unlock the device only the work profile is goes wiped out keeping the personal data untouched. Please add the separate work profile feature for iOS platform as well.
Can't have 2 emails
by StephanieGodfrey on 2019/03/13 11:38
Why can't I have 2 work emails on my phone? Never had this problem before until a month ago. Highly aggravating.
Unreasonable
by Kbrock282 on 2019/03/07 03:47
I am a student, and the only reason I’m getting this app is so I can talk to my teachers and school group. It takes up space and is incredibly unreasonable. I don’t see the point in downloading a whole new app that takes up space just so I can text people. Not to mention hangouts didn’t need this feature in the past.
Works well
by krevbot on 2019/02/26 21:52
As an IT professional we use this is in our environment for mobile device management and find it works well. If you don’t want your device invaded you could always, you know....not add your email account to your phone. If you want company information on your phone you inherit the risks associated with that.

SO UNHELPFUL
by Ehren Graff on 2019/02/21 16:37
As a student, being able to use my phone to turn or work on something in is very valuable. This app completely takes that away. My apps were working perfectly before this came out. It is unfair and is an excuse of a “benefit”. Please remove this app and have the daily apps I use like Google Classroom be able to be accessed as easy as they once were!!
I do not want to have this app in my phone
by fabio2x4 on 2019/02/19 01:45
Why am I forced to update this app? It is useless for me and I dont care what problem it solves?
Worse than unreliable
by Youngjun ko on 2019/02/12 14:45
The app keeps saying “your account is still being REGISTERED” and keeps bringing up these error tabs. I can login to my school account or Google Classroom (which, last time I checked, is very important to a STUDENT) I wished this app never existed in the first place. My accounts were able to function just fine without it, if anything, this stupid piece of crap just hindered it
Access failure
by rixhawz on 2019/01/07 22:20
Does not work with authentication structure at our institution.
Hmm?
by slskksksksks on 2019/01/06 02:56
This is kinda odd, I need to access google classroom for my school work and the app kinddddaaaa interferes. 1. I don’t have enough space to download anything more and 2. It wants a lot to access to my private information and phone then I am comfortable with. I don’t see the goal here.
Works like it should
by nunyabot on 2019/01/03 19:42
The people that have issues with the app have never had to manage or try to manage iOS devices in the wild. Apple makes it nearly impossible to implement security in an enterprise in any meaningful way, they still think in the consumer space.
Install fail
by Kendra214 on 2018/12/19 21:23
This is a big problem we need to access our business emails
DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP, IT WILL TAKE OVER YOUR PHONE!!!!!!
by saltier salt on 2018/12/14 11:51
I had to access my business account only to find that I had to get ANOTHER google app. I didn’t think it would be a big deal until I had to download it into my settings, CHANGE MY PASSWORD! The old system worked perfectly well! And to top it all off, it won’t even let me access my accounts for one hour from now when I have something urgent to work on. The fact this app has so much access to your phone is absolute nonsense
HORRIBLE
by Angry Person 123 on 2018/12/13 00:45
I am trying to use google on my phone for school and now they have to further complicate everything I do and make it so that I can’t use google on my phone unless my school has complete access to all I do on my phone and all of my settings. This is ridiculous and I just won’t use google on my phone anymore. RIDICULOUS!
Will not install
by EllsF on 2018/11/26 21:29
Will not install on my up to date IPad. Ugh! Frustrating
Why?
by Cool cats don't look back on 2018/11/06 01:50
This addition to Google is nothing but a pain. It worked fine before with no one complaining about policies and monitoring. Now my email for school won't work on mobile because Google Docs thinks it's some type of work email. This update is the worst of the worst and should be taken down.
Forced
by EP9520 on 2018/11/01 19:53
You shouldn’t be forced to have to install an app in order for your prior functioning apps to work again....
Useless
by Mihwa12345 on 2018/07/15 13:48
My gmail keeps on giving me that “your device isn’t updated-“ bs and I’m trying to Get the Apple push certificate thing with device management. This was just another failed attempt. It said “error” the second I got on it.
Error message all the time

Broken app

A must have for your G Suite powered company
by chriscendana on 2018/04/12 02:30
With this app, you can push your device policy and present a menu of approved apps. Very handy. For future improvement: It would be awesome if users had the option to install all post device approval.
A necessity for Google apps powered enterprises
by allen.collins on 2018/03/10 03:56
Allows your company‘s IT department to manage security profiles on our corporate or personal device to provide you with access to corporate resources. You would only download this app if instructed by your company or if you manage your enterprise security.
Pure garbage
by nextmarvel on 2017/09/04 16:59
I mean it's google. Can't make a working app bruh? What is this crap. Just error ridden from my iPad to my iPhone.
Pointless obstacle
by sleepywose on 2017/09/03 17:48
Regardless of the IT reasons for this app's existence, it adds no value to users. I have to sync it daily, and background app refresh is of course disabled when my phone is in battery saver mode, which is as often as possible, so I end up having to go through a pointless song and dance.
Other reviewers don't understand
by zbowling on 2017/08/09 17:28
This app is made for your employer to enforce it's IT polices. If you want to use your own device for work you use this app to enroll it's policies which often allow them to remote wipe if you loose your device.
Won't download
by Mikabun on 2017/08/09 07:48
This just says waiting no matter what I do, and yes, my internet's working just fine. For some reason I'm now required to download this, as it's logged me out of all my apps. Completely awful, because I can't download it.
Wipe Device is Unacceptable
by Sarek on 2017/08/09 03:12
A remote wipe of device is unacceptable, especially if an accident. If a remote device wipe is enabled via iCloud this should not be allowed. Highly recommend you do not allow your employer to remote wipe your device, unless it is their property.
Update required
by 撒欢儿poiuy on 2017/08/08 18:25
When opening gmail, it prompted me to update the Device Policy App in App Store. There is no update available for this app on app store....
Doesn't work...
by Subvertio on 2017/06/16 14:28

Useless due to major bugs
by Bion Howard on 2017/04/07 23:14
Every google app on the iPhone is a useless mess. These apps do not function, they just spam security warnings over and over. "Device policy alert" over and over and over. The support pages for this topic are completely irrelevant and don't solve the problem. This app instantly fails upon load with "httpstatus error 500" chatting with google support people did nothing to solve the problem, either, but it did lead me to unlink my email account, which will not re-link successfully! Yay, now I can't even read emails in an account that I pay for. Avoid google apps on the iPhone!
Horrible - Invades Personal Property
by zdk$56 on 2017/02/22 02:37
My personal phone should not be in control of my employer. They should not be able to wipe my phone. It should only be limited to wiping data managed by this app, which are Google apps only. Think about the consequences when an employer decides to wipe a personal phone whether it is by accident, termination, or on purpose and you need your phone in an emergency. For example, you are involved in a car accident, need to find your child, etc. and you need to contact 911.....but you iPhone has been wiped, rebooted, and won't start. Google should not be providing the ability to wipe an iPhone without determining/validating if an iPhone is owned by the business or it is a personal phone. Remove remote wiping and monitoring, of anything outside the container, immediately. How did this app pass security reviews when Apple already provides this feature? Stop invading personal property and privacy!!! Protect my data. Protect my iPhone....Google and Apple.

This is kinda odd, I need to access google classroom for my school work and the app kinddddaaaa interferes. 1. I don’t have enough space to download anything more and 2. It wants a lot to access to my private information and phone then I am comfortable with. I don’t see the goal here.

Wipe Device is Unacceptable
by Sarek on 2017/08/09 03:12
A remote wipe of device is unacceptable, especially if an accident. If a remote device wipe is enabled via iCloud this should not be allowed. Highly recommend you do not allow your employer to remote wipe your device, unless it is their property.

Horrible - Invades Personal Property
by zdk$56 on 2017/02/22 02:37
My personal phone should not be in control of my employer. They should not be able to wipe my phone. It should only be limited to wiping data managed by this app, which are Google apps only. Think about the consequences when an employer decides to wipe a personal phone whether it is by accident, termination, or on purpose and you need your phone in an emergency. For example, you are involved in a car accident, need to find your child, etc. and you need to contact 911.....but you iPhone has been wiped, rebooted, and won't start. Google should not be providing the ability to wipe an iPhone without determining/validating if an iPhone is owned by the business or it is a personal phone. Remove remote wiping and monitoring, of anything outside the container, immediately. How did this app pass security reviews when Apple already provides this feature? Stop invading personal property and privacy!!! Protect my data. Protect my iPhone....Google and Apple.
Useless due to major bugs
by Bion Howard on 2017/04/07 23:14
Every google app on the iPhone is a useless mess. These apps do not function, they just spam security warnings over and over. "Device policy alert" over and over and over. The support pages for this topic are completely irrelevant and don't solve the problem. This app instantly fails upon load with "httpstatus error 500" chatting with google support people did nothing to solve the problem, either, but it did lead me to unlink my email account, which will not re-link successfully! Yay, now I can't even read emails in an account that I pay for. Avoid google apps on the iPhone!
Update required
by 撒欢儿poiuy on 2017/08/08 18:25
When opening gmail, it prompted me to update the Device Policy App in App Store. There is no update available for this app on app store....

I don’t see a point of this app. All I want is to get into projects I need to quickly fix from my phone and Gdrive/slides would be keep saying I need to install this Device app. Can’t figure out why it sometimes works (Google apps not asking me to sign in to the GDivice Policy). Wish I can access without having to download this :(.
This is the worst app in history

So I can’t do my work because of this message that keeps on showing up and says to regain access to your work contact your organization admin so please fix this because I contacted my administrator but they didn’t know how to fix this so I don’t know what’s happening or either my administrator is preventing me from using this app or this is just a bug so fix this bug or I’ll contact my administrator for details about why this is happening
Frustrating
by SB91790 on 2019/05/30 00:29
I’m required to have this for my work email. However it keeps telling me to “update” the app, but then the app does not show any available updates, and keeps telling me to contact my admin. Admin has spent hours on the phone with google and I am STILL locked out of my work email and calendar... which is a HUGE problem as I am the assistant director of a small non profit organization and we need everyone to be on the same page.
Stuck in an infinite loop

Works Great!
by scam submission alert on 2019/05/16 22:02
You need to remove other device MDM profiles for it to work. I had set one up manually and it conflicted. If you are not an admin on the google business account, you may (will) have problems.... you will need to contact your admin... that’s easy if you are the admin. If you are not the admin and trying to install it, then it may or may not be configured. If you haven’t talked to your IT Dept., and you are not the IT Debt, don’t install it. This is for corporate google accounts, not your free gmail account. The purpose is for MDM... so you should probably accept all of the prompts that indicate it can remotely manage and wipe your device... that’s is the point.
Cancer for your phone
by Stuffy McKinnz on 2019/05/07 13:30
Avoid this at all costs if you can. It is way more complicated than it should be. I downloaded it to view my emails from work, but it has never worked properly. It just keeps taking me to a menu to download a bunch of other junk and I still can’t see my emails! Also, every time I use the browser on my phone, it reminds me that I haven’t completed the installation. (You also can’t delete it once it is installed, otherwise I would have removed it by now!) Edit: Now I’m just stuck in a loop trying to install my profile. It asks me to download, I hit accept and then it tells me to review my settings. Then it just kicks me back to the install profile section. What a joke!

Is Privacy in Google dictionary ?
by Google Privacy on 2019/04/25 19:26
To use google suite with business account, you need to install some profile from this app, which allows remote admin collect and modify data on your phone. Yeah you can say no. But then you cannot check your gmail, get google calendar notification and chat with your coworker using Google Chat. Destroy your business life if you rely on Google suite heavily. I truly understand the concern of the data leakage caused by losing phone. But forcing us to give out our privacy is definitely not a solution .

Not on my device
by kbad57 on 2019/04/25 13:50
I used to be able to do productive things for work on my mobile. Now I’m going to have to dump the gmail app and use some other email client instead. I’ll lose the ability to use docs, sheets, slides, drive, and chat. There is no way I’m giving my employer full reign over my phone. There absolutely needs to be a way to compartmentalize this madness.

I’ve tried using other emails and the same message will pop up or it would say that I have to sign into G suite, even though I already have. They need to fix this ASAP and the inconvenience is causing delay with attaining assignments for work.
So frustrating
by BeaversDen on 2019/04/13 18:15
It does not work very well with iOS. I keep getting a message saying to contact my admin. I am the admin. It does not verify in sync with the other apps with Google. This is entirely unnecessary to begin with. This should be an article that runs across ALL google platforms. It should not be carried by device. Instead, it should have an iOS API key generated per the USER that self destructs AFTER all google platforms are synchronized with the device. And new APIs generated upon verification requests.

If your employer want to wipe their data or user enter wrong password several time to unlock the device only the work profile is goes wiped out keeping the personal data untouched. Please add the separate work profile feature for iOS platform as well.

I am a student, and the only reason I’m getting this app is so I can talk to my teachers and school group. It takes up space and is incredibly unreasonable.

by BeaversDen on 2019/04/13 18:15
It does not work very well with iOS. I keep getting a message saying to contact my admin. I am the admin. It does not verify in sync with the other apps with Google. This is entirely unnecessary to begin with. This should be an article that runs across ALL google platforms. It should not be carried by device. Instead, it should have an iOS API key generated per the USER that self destructs AFTER all google platforms are synchronized with the device. And new APIs generated upon verification requests.
A necessity for Google apps powered enterprises

Allows your company‘s IT department to manage security profiles on our corporate or personal device to provide you with access to corporate resources. You would only download this app if instructed by your company or if you manage your enterprise security.
DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP, IT WILL TAKE OVER YOUR PHONE!!!!!!
by saltier salt on 2018/12/14 11:51
I had to access my business account only to find that I had to get ANOTHER google app. I didn’t think it would be a big deal until I had to download it into my settings, CHANGE MY PASSWORD! The old system worked perfectly well! And to top it all off, it won’t even let me access my accounts for one hour from now when I have something urgent to work on. The fact this app has so much access to your phone is absolute nonsense
Frustrating
by SB91790 on 2019/05/30 00:29
I’m required to have this for my work email. However it keeps telling me to “update” the app, but then the app does not show any available updates, and keeps telling me to contact my admin. Admin has spent hours on the phone with google and I am STILL locked out of my work email and calendar... which is a HUGE problem as I am the assistant director of a small non profit organization and we need everyone to be on the same page.
Other reviewers don't understand
by zbowling on 2017/08/09 17:28
This app is made for your employer to enforce it's IT polices. If you want to use your own device for work you use this app to enroll it's policies which often allow them to remote wipe if you loose your device.
Worse than unreliable
by Youngjun ko on 2019/02/12 14:45
The app keeps saying “your account is still being REGISTERED” and keeps bringing up these error tabs. I can login to my school account or Google Classroom (which, last time I checked, is very important to a STUDENT) I wished this app never existed in the first place. My accounts were able to function just fine without it, if anything, this stupid piece of crap just hindered it
A must have for your G Suite powered company
by chriscendana on 2018/04/12 02:30
With this app, you can push your device policy and present a menu of approved apps. Very handy. For future improvement: It would be awesome if users had the option to install all post device approval.
Not on my device
by kbad57 on 2019/04/25 13:50
I used to be able to do productive things for work on my mobile. Now I’m going to have to dump the gmail app and use some other email client instead. I’ll lose the ability to use docs, sheets, slides, drive, and chat. There is no way I’m giving my employer full reign over my phone. There absolutely needs to be a way to compartmentalize this madness.
SO UNHELPFUL
by Ehren Graff on 2019/02/21 16:37
As a student, being able to use my phone to turn or work on something in is very valuable. This app completely takes that away. My apps were working perfectly before this came out. It is unfair and is an excuse of a “benefit”. Please remove this app and have the daily apps I use like Google Classroom be able to be accessed as easy as they once were!!
Install broken, unable to exit infinite loop
by mccshark on 2019/04/25 16:28
Unfortunately I’m forced to use Gmail for my company email. Subsequently I’m now required to use the new Device Policy feature. Unfortunately for me, the install component broken and convoluted. Deleting Gmail, Google Drive and Google Device Manger doesn’t fix the problem. What a waste of a morning, thanks Google!
Unreasonable
by Kbrock282 on 2019/03/07 03:47
I am a student, and the only reason I’m getting this app is so I can talk to my teachers and school group. It takes up space and is incredibly unreasonable. I don’t see the point in downloading a whole new app that takes up space just so I can text people. Not to mention hangouts didn’t need this feature in the past.
Hate it
by duswl9741 on 2019/06/10 14:36
I don’t see a point of this app. All I want is to get into projects I need to quickly fix from my phone and Gdrive/slides would be keep saying I need to install this Device app. Can’t figure out why it sometimes works (Google apps not asking me to sign in to the GDivice Policy). Wish I can access without having to download this :(.
HORRIBLE
by Angry Person 123 on 2018/12/13 00:45
I am trying to use google on my phone for school and now they have to further complicate everything I do and make it so that I can’t use google on my phone unless my school has complete access to all I do on my phone and all of my settings. This is ridiculous and I just won’t use google on my phone anymore. RIDICULOUS!
Why?
by Cool cats don't look back on 2018/11/06 01:50
This addition to Google is nothing but a pain. It worked fine before with no one complaining about policies and monitoring. Now my email for school won't work on mobile because Google Docs thinks it's some type of work email. This update is the worst of the worst and should be taken down.
Pointless obstacle
by sleepywose on 2017/09/03 17:48
Regardless of the IT reasons for this app's existence, it adds no value to users. I have to sync it daily, and background app refresh is of course disabled when my phone is in battery saver mode, which is as often as possible, so I end up having to go through a pointless song and dance.
Stuck in an infinite loop
by eglivin on 2019/05/17 00:26
This app is terrible!!!! I can no longer see my work calendar because it tells me to download the app (which I’ve already done) and then tells me to sign in, then again tells me to download the app. I uninstalled and reinstalled to try and fix it... but it wasn’t successful
Doesn’t work
by Neda Navidnia on 2019/03/16 14:56
Checking my business emails while I’m out is very important but it has been a week that I don’t get my emails and the app keeps showing a stupid error. Help and support are not doing anything and there is nothing else to do.
The best
by Valco3326 on 2019/06/11 01:46
Works great, easy to install, easy to understand and easy to manage.
What the hell is this...
by TheNotoriousSAM on 2019/05/03 14:35
All of a sudden I can’t use google drive, I’ve followed the steps and still can’t use it. I’ve downloaded this is app, which is useless. At this point I cannot use google drive on my phone and going to delete it.
Hmm?
by slskksksksks on 2019/01/06 02:56
This is kinda odd, I need to access google classroom for my school work and the app kinddddaaaa interferes. 1. I don’t have enough space to download anything more and 2. It wants a lot to access to my private information and phone then I am comfortable with. I don’t see the goal here.
Bully application
by googleisbully on 2019/05/05 11:14
I tried to install once and realized the company would have control over my own device, and I didn’t want to. It has been harassing me by prompting to install this thing every time I access google drive
Useless
by Mihwa12345 on 2018/07/15 13:48
My gmail keeps on giving me that “your device isn’t updated-“ bs and I’m trying to Get the Apple push certificate thing with device management. This was just another failed attempt. It said “error” the second I got on it.
Won't download
by Mikabun on 2017/08/09 07:48
This just says waiting no matter what I do, and yes, my internet's working just fine. For some reason I'm now required to download this, as it's logged me out of all my apps. Completely awful, because I can't download it.
Wipe Device is Unacceptable
by Sarek on 2017/08/09 03:12
A remote wipe of device is unacceptable, especially if an accident. If a remote device wipe is enabled via iCloud this should not be allowed. Highly recommend you do not allow your employer to remote wipe your device, unless it is their property.
Stuck
by saharahmedelnaseshalabyjohnson on 2019/06/17 12:26
I am stuck at download your profile and can’t get pass that to view my email as well it’s frustrating when you can’t use the app
Can't have 2 emails
by StephanieGodfrey on 2019/03/13 11:38
Why can't I have 2 work emails on my phone? Never had this problem before until a month ago. Highly aggravating.
Install fail
by Kendra214 on 2018/12/19 21:23
This is a big problem we need to access our business emails
Error message all the time
by Kammie0301 on 2018/05/15 03:05
Always tells me about devise being sync with another devise. Know seems to know why either.
Broken app
by Maxuel Lazzarotto on 2018/05/05 13:01
Won’t sync due to an error 500, have done everything and nothing happens. Couldn’t even synchronize an new iPad
Forced
by EP9520 on 2018/11/01 19:53
You shouldn’t be forced to have to install an app in order for your prior functioning apps to work again....
I do not want to have this app in my phone
by fabio2x4 on 2019/02/19 01:45
Why am I forced to update this app? It is useless for me and I dont care what problem it solves?
Can’t accept the install
by mc20192019 on 2019/05/03 22:13
I can download the install ... but never accept it:( painful

Will not install

Will not install on my up to date IPad. Ugh! Frustrating
Pure garbage
by nextmarvel on 2017/09/04 16:59
I mean it's google. Can't make a working app bruh? What is this crap. Just error ridden from my iPad to my iPhone.
😡
by J18181817161661 on 2019/03/21 17:57
Hold on. The ability to completely wipe my phone? What? No.
Access failure

Horrible - Invades Personal Property
by zdk$56 on 2017/02/22 02:37
My personal phone should not be in control of my employer. They should not be able to wipe my phone. It should only be limited to wiping data managed by this app, which are Google apps only. Think about the consequences when an employer decides to wipe a personal phone whether it is by accident, termination, or on purpose and you need your phone in an emergency. For example, you are involved in a car accident, need to find your child, etc. and you need to contact 911.....but you iPhone has been wiped, rebooted, and won't start. Google should not be providing the ability to wipe an iPhone without determining/validating if an iPhone is owned by the business or it is a personal phone. Remove remote wiping and monitoring, of anything outside the container, immediately. How did this app pass security reviews when Apple already provides this feature? Stop invading personal property and privacy!!! Protect my data. Protect my iPhone....Google and Apple.
Useless due to major bugs
by Bion Howard on 2017/04/07 23:14
Every google app on the iPhone is a useless mess. These apps do not function, they just spam security warnings over and over. "Device policy alert" over and over and over. The support pages for this topic are completely irrelevant and don't solve the problem. This app instantly fails upon load with "httpstatus error 500" chatting with google support people did nothing to solve the problem, either, but it did lead me to unlink my email account, which will not re-link successfully! Yay, now I can't even read emails in an account that I pay for. Avoid google apps on the iPhone!
Update required
by 撒欢儿poiuy on 2017/08/08 18:25
When opening gmail, it prompted me to update the Device Policy App in App Store. There is no update available for this app on app store....
