Default What do BES administrators have access to?

Please Login to Remove!

Anyone know of a good source that explains what a BES administrator could see on our devices if they wanted to? What privacy do we on BES have if any?

Yes. You could try a search on this forum since the topic has been discussed many times.

After your fired for violating some policy you can get a BB of your own and it will be private...well sort of. Some companys are worse than big brother.

There's not much I can do as a Hosted BES provider - other than seeing how many emails have been forwarded and sent from your device. I could, lock you out with a password, wipe your device, but why would any reputable BES provider do that? There are tools provided to us if you lose your phone, but I can't read your messages or anything like that

Rumour has it that with BES6 and OS 7 you'll be able to perform drug test just from the fumes.
