NFC Provisioning

Use NFC provisioning to send Wi-Fi and enrollment information from an enrolled Android Enterprise device to a new fully managed device. This process requires two devices: one that has the provisioning information and one to be provisioned. The device you are provisioning should either be in a factory reset state or being set up for the first time.

Device to device NFC provisioning only works with devices running Android 9 or older. To provision devices running Android 10, you will need to use third-party software to send the Wi-Fi and enrollment information to an NFC tag.

For a demonstration of setting up and using NFC provisioning, see the following video:
