Submission + - Android Phones Get Dual Accounts (technologyreview.com)

holy_calamity writes: "AT&T is adopting technology that gives a person with an Android device two user profiles, enabling company email and other data to reside in an encrypted partition separate from a users apps, games and unfettered web browsing. AT&T are calling the feature Toggle, and plan to release it later this year. Toggle is a regular app that once installed creates its own, encrypted desktop under the control of company IT bosses. Toggle is a rebranding of an app developed by startup Enterproid, which continues to develop its own version. AT&T think this move will encourage smartphone adoption in the enterprise. Interestingly, Apple's current version of iOS and app guidelines exclude multiple profiles on one device."
