To add the KES device of a user to the list of managed devices using a link to Google Play™:

  1. In the console tree, select the User accounts folder.

    By default, the User accounts folder is a subfolder of the Advanced folder.

  2. Select the account of the user whose mobile device you want add to the list of managed devices.
  3. In the context menu of the user account, select Add mobile device.

    The Mobile device connection wizard starts. In the Certificate source window of the wizard, you have to specify the method for creating the shared certificate that Administration Server will use to identify the mobile device. You can specify a shared certificate in one of the following ways:

    • Create a shared certificate automatically, by means of Administration Server tools, and then deliver the certificate to the device.
    • Specify a shared certificate file.
  4. In the Device type window of the wizard, select Link to Google Play.
  5. In the User notification method window of the wizard, define the settings for notification of the mobile device user of certificate creation (with an SMS message, by email, or by displaying the information when the wizard has finished).
  6. In the certificate info window of the wizard, click the Finish button to close the wizard.

After the wizard finishes its activities, a link and a QR code will be sent to the mobile device of the user, allowing the user to download Kaspersky Endpoint Security from Google Play. The user proceeds to Google Play by using the link or by scanning the QR code. After this, the operating system of the device prompts the user to accept Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Android installation. After Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Android is downloaded and installed, the mobile device connects to the Administration Server and downloads a shared certificate. After the certificate is installed on the mobile device, the device is displayed in the Mobile devices folder, which is a subfolder of the Mobile Device Management folder in the console tree.

If Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Android has already been installed on the device, the user has to receive the Administration Server connection settings from the administrator and then enter them independently. After the connection settings are defined, the mobile device connects to the Administration Server. The administrator issues a shared certificate for the device and sends the user an email message or an SMS message with a login and password for the certificate download. The user downloads and installs the shared certificate. After the certificate is installed on the mobile device, the device is displayed in the Mobile devices folder, which is a subfolder of the Mobile Device Management folder in the console tree. In this case, Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Android will not be downloaded and installed again.
