AT&T Toggle is the latest app that has come up in the world. It will definitely help all those people who use the same Smartphone that is Android based for their personal work as well as other office work.
This app gives you liberty to keep two separate profiles on your Android smartphone, which may be completely independent of each other. One of the profiles could be your work profile from which who manage all your day to day work and the other could be your personal profile. Things like calendars, corporate e-mail, data and apps can only be accessible through the work profile. So this app can be a great help to many.
Corporate employees could enable the company’s setting on their smartphone through AT&T Toggle. The employer’s admin of IT team could use this app to allocate different resources to different users with the help of a special portal. The IT admin of the company could also manage all the business apps which are present in the work profile. They could even add or delete such business apps. The IT admin could also delete all the corporate data present in the smartphone as decided by the company.
AT&T sees big demand for such an app in the future. According to the company, about 50 million employees alone in the U.S. could benefit from such an app. In this age where most of the companies allow personal devices that can be carried over to workplace, AT&T Toggle could be a huge benefit for both the company as well as the user.
