Types of Spaces For Your Blackphone 2

In addition to your owner space, you can create up to three other spaces on your Blackphone 2. There are three types of spaces you can add: Personal Spaces, a Silent Space (limited to one per device), and Managed Spaces.

Personal Spaces

Personal spaces are entirely customizable. You decide what to call them, which apps live in them, and even what kind of access a space itself gets – whether you can make phone calls from the space, if it has access to your location, and so on. Personal spaces let you design and control separate areas to meet your own unique needs and privacy concerns.

Silent Spaces

A Silent Space is similar to a Personal Space, but it does not include Google apps and does not support Google services. You can install new apps in a Silent Space using a third-party app store of your choosing (or by allowing installation from unknown sources) but remember that any apps that require Google services for full functionality may not work as expected.

Managed Spaces

Managed Spaces are typically generated by your employer and deployed via an emailed link, or by scanning a QR code. Settings for these Spaces are determined by the third party who creates them: for example, your employer may want to create a Managed Space on your device specifically for your work apps and data, with specific privacy and security settings; or the organizers of a conference may offer a space that includes the conference program, maps, related apps, and supporting materials. When the conference is over, you can easily delete the whole space.

Now that you know about the different types of Spaces, let’s move on to Creating a Space.
