Bring your own device (BYOD) support

You can allow users to install and activate ​ETP Client​ on their personal devices. Unlike installations of the client that are installed and distributed by administrators with an enterprise-wide entitlement code, users can install and activate ​ETP Client​ with a user-specific activation code.


The entitlement code can also activate the client on the user’s device. However, for security reasons, the activation code is recommended to prevent users from sharing the enterprise-wide entitlement code.

BYOD applies to devices with supported operating systems. For a list of supported operating systems, see Supported desktop operating systems for the desktop version of the client and Supported mobile operating systems for the mobile version.


The BYOD activation process does not apply to administrators who install and widely distribute clients throughout their organization with device management software. This process also does not apply to command line installations that use the entitlement code.

After an administrator provides users with the client and it's installed on a device, users are prompted for an activation code. These methods are available for users to receive the code:

  • From ​SIA​, administrators can email activation codes to users.

  • Administrators can generate activation codes in ​SIA​ and distribute these codes offline to users.

  • From ​ETP Client​, users can request an activation code. The client allows users to enter an email address to receive the code. If the provided email domain was preconfigured in ​SIA​ as an authorized domain, ​SIA​ sends an invitation with the activation code.

After an activation code is generated or sent to the user, it is valid for seven days.
