Get a report of inactive company devices

This feature isn't available in the free edition of Cloud Identity.

You can get a monthly report of unused company-owned Android devices that haven’t synchronized any work data in the last 30 days. The report is automatically emailed to all super administrators, and any other recipients you specify. Recipients can download the file to check for unused devices and see who last signed in with them.

Note: Personal devices in device owner mode aren’t reported. Only devices that you imported by serial number into your Admin console are included.

What’s in the report?

The report is a CSV file that lists these device details:

  • Serial number and asset tag
  • Date it was first set up
  • Time it last synced
  • The email address of the last user that signed in
