Aarhus University has introduced a new security policy which means that a PIN number must be used and that the phone must automatically lock after 10 minutes max. when not in use after which it can only be opened with your PIN.
This also applies to mobile phones bought with private funds. Minimum password length: 4 characters.
On your mobile phone, there is a list of Microsoft Exchange rights. On that list you will see that it is possible to ‘remote wipe’ your phone. Microsoft Exchange makes it possible for the user as well as for AU IT to ‘remote wipe’ a mobile phone (that is, remove all contents). ‘Remote wiping’ is an option if you for instance lose
your phone and it is possible for you to ‘remote wipe’ your own phone through webmail. If you need help ‘remote wiping’ your phone, please contact the IT support of your main academic area.
nB! You must accept the au security policy in order to set up your email and calendar on your phone.
nB! the pictures used in this manual are from an iPhone. the position of some settings may therefore vary if you use an iPad. the terms in the manual will nonetheless correspond to both.

If you do not have an old e-mail account from Aarhus University on your iPhone/iPad, you can skip this step and go directly to page 3.
If you already have your AU email (and calendar) on your iPhone/ iPad, you need to delete the current setup.
If you have more than one Aarhus University mail account on your device, you should only delete the account you want to set up afterwards.

Set up your email account
Turn on your iPhone/iPad (and unlock it in case it is screen locked). Find and choose ‘Settings’.
Scroll down and choose ‘Mail, Contacts, Calendars’.
