A Roaming Client is a tiny piece of software that is installed on a device, where it always runs in the background. It’s primary job is to do two things:
Customers primarily use Roaming Clients to:
In short, any device! Roaming clients can be installed on Windows, Mac, Chrome, iOS or Android devices. Due to Apple policies, iOS devices must be in “Supervised Mode” which means they won’t work with “Bring your own device” setups.
During the testing phase, you can simply download the appropriate Roaming Client and install it on your device. When you are ready to roll out the roaming clients to the rest of the organization, they can be installed silently in the background using your device management software. We have deployment guides for every platform to make it easy.
Not if it’s installed properly. On mobile devices, Mobile Device Management (MDM) software designates the Roaming Client as a mandatory app that cannot be uninstalled. On desktop devices, the client requires Admin privileges to remove. On Windows machines, the client can be hidden on the desktop, as well as add/remove programs.
First, if you haven’t created an account yet start your free trial. Inside the Dashboard select “Deployments” then you will see the option to select “Roaming Clients”. From there click the “Install” tab to get started.
