Allowing participants to access VIA from mobile apps

  • Updated

Product: VIA Pro for the Web
Applies to: Administrators
 

You can allow Workspace participants to access Intralinks VIA Pro using Intralinks mobile apps for iPad, iPhone and Android. If you allow participants to access Workspaces using mobile devices, you also can allow them to download files to their iPhone or iPad. This is useful when people may need to refer to files while their devices are offline. Downloaded files are available only within the Intralinks VIA app. Other apps will not be able to access them. Only files that are not IRM protected can be downloaded.

As an added security measure, you can allow people to download files only to Touch ID-enabled devices. Keep in mind that older PIN-based devices are less secure than Touch ID-enabled devices.
