Get information about computers that access data
You can get device details such as the operating system, user account, and management type. To get more information about the device's security configuration, such as if the device is password-protected, turn on endpoint verification.
If an endpoint managed by fundamental management starts to use another management type, such as endpoint verification, the device listing is archived and a new listing is created for the new management type.
- You can see archived devices in your Admin console for 180 days.
- A device might be listed more than once if it uses more than one management type.
- You can’t perform any actions on archived device listings, such as signing a user out. Instead, find the new device listing and perform the action from there.
