On the settings/accounts & backup/accounts page, myphone lists my gmail.com account as a “work account”.
I do not have a separate work profile.
The gmail work account is listed in addition the google account & email. It is alongside my actual corporate work account with the same swing badge icon.
I accepted mdm for the corporate account (an office 365 based account), which confers admin rights over the phone.
A separate exchange active sync is also present for the corporate account.
I should be able to remove the corporate account & this will remove the content (contacts, calendars, emails) but I am very nervous about any effort to remove the work gmail account.
- Could anyone confirm what effect this might have if I try to remove the “work” gmail?
- How can I tell which organisation actually owns this “work” gmail account? (All references I find are for workspace corporate gmail accounts & work profiles but this is a personal gmail.com so I haven’t found assistance there)
Eg, has a malicious app gained control of the account? (No current evidence of that, but who knows….)
I will discuss with the sysadmin responsible for my corporate account - could it just be a side effect of enabling o365 corporate stuff?
My section of company is being demerged/transferred very soon so I like to resolve before someone accidentally wipes my entire phone….
Thanks the reading
