I'd like to configure my company's Google e-mail on my iPhone, however when enabling e-mail profile in Inbox, Gmail, Mail or any other app, the following Device Policy Alert is shown:
To use Google apps on this device as ..., your organisation requires that you install a security profile to keep your data safe.
And on the next screen the Google Apps Device Policy Profile says:
Your admin may enforce policies, configure settings, and remotely erase data on this device.
I would argue how allowing remotely erase data on this device keep my data safe, but anyway.
My question is, what are the security risks involved by installing above Google policy profile which warns me that somebody from the company may which I work for can remotely erase my personal data on my device?
In other words, is this policy profile applies only for the e-mail data (like restricting the removal option only for specific app) or any other data as well (like personal e-mails, contacts, files, pictures, etc.), where somebody can accidentally wipe out my whole device?
