You can see a report of activities on Android and Apple® iOS® devices that are used in your organization. For example, you can see if a user’s device is compliant with the policies you set on the device. You review the various device activities in a log in the Google Admin console. What you see depends on the device and user account. 

Before you begin

To view events on Android and iOS devices:

  • The devices need to be managed using advanced mobile management. For details, see Set up mobile device management.
  • Devices need to sync data using Android sync or iOS Sync for G Suite.
