What To Do

As of now, it is not possible to automatically activate the iOS Sophos Mobile Control (SMC) Client app using a task.
You can activate the iOS SMC app in the following ways

  • Activate it via the Self Service Portal using the "Activate Sophos Mobile Control app" in the Tasks for an iOS device.
  • Activate it using the "Activate iOS SMC app" button in the device details of the SMC web managment.
  • Manually enter the URL of the SMC server at the iOS app itself.
Note: As of iOS 7 and Sophos Mobile Control 3.6 the Sophos Mobile Control server automatically configures the settings for the app during the deplyoment. Manual activation of the app is not necessary anymore for these devices.
