Change your EMM provider

Change a third-party EMM provider

If your company uses a third-party enterprise mobility management (EMM) provider and wants to change it, you need to contact the current EMM provider and ask them to “unbind” Android management from your company’s Google Account. You can then choose to bind Google Mobile Management as your EMM provider or bind another third-party EMM.

Change Google Mobile Management

If Google is your EMM provider, you need super administrator credentials for your company’s domain to access Android management settings in the Google Admin console. Then, you can remove Google Mobile Management as your EMM provider in the Admin console.

To remove Google Mobile Management:

  1. Sign into the Admin console at admin.google.com as a super administrator for the company's domain.
  2. Click Device managementSetup > Android App Management.
  3. Click the link to remove Google Mobile Management as your EMM provider.
  4. Check the box to understand and accept the changes, and click Disable.
  5. See Bind a third-party EMM provider to change to a third-party EMM provider.

Change from Google Device Manager (Play Store and Android Apps on Chrome)

If you have enabled Play Store and Android Apps on Chrome, Google Device Manager is listed as your EMM provider.

To unbind Google Device Manager:

  1. Sign into the Admin console at admin.google.com as a super administrator for the company's domain.
  2. Click Device management > Chrome management > Android application settings.
  3. Uncheck the Enable Android applications to be managed through the Admin Console box.

You can then choose to enable Google Mobile Management or another third-party EMM as your EMM provider.
