What is BBM Enterprise app?

BBM Enterprise App

BBM Enterprise is a secure mobile, cross-platform, messaging and collaboration tool. It provides the same user- friendly experience that’s earned BBM millions of fans worldwide – with the end-to-end security enterprise needs.

BBM Enterprise allows users to take advantage of the speed, reliability and privacy of BBM for faster communication, collaboration and decision making while providing security conscious organizations enhanced security over corporate data. BBM Enterprise is the ideal business communication tool because it is mobile and immediate. Unlike enterprise IM tools that were originally designed for use on the desktop, BBM Enterprise offers a truly mobile experience, on a variety of devices.

With BBM Enterprise, you only need one app to cover your mobile messaging and collaboration needs. Users know when their colleagues have received and read messages, so they can collaborate with confidence, in real-time. One-to-one chats, group discussions and file sharing all happen with the protection required by security-focused organizations – and all with an immediacy and accountability that’s hard to achieve through any other communication channel.

BBM Enterprise uses a FIPS 140-2 validated cryptographic library and leverages BlackBerry’s secure infrastructure, trusted by security-conscious and regulated organizations around the world, to protect data while it’s in transit and at rest.  All the added security offered by BBM Enterprise happens in the background, so there’s no impact on the BBM user experience.

BBMe on multiple devices

Subscribe to Blackberry Enterprise

BBMe supports up to five different devices and is available on Android, iOS, Windows, and Mac. In order to have it active on more than one device, you have to authorize each device. So simply download BBMe on the various devices, log in with your BlackBerry ID and you will be presented with two different options.

  1. Add this device to my BBM Enterprise Account – This will allow you to have BBMe on multiple devices and trigger an authorization screen. In order to activate, you must have one of your other activated devices handy as you’ll have to open BBMe and enter the code. Once entered, whichever device you’re setting up will login and your other devices will remain active as well.
  2. Switch my BBM Enterprise account to this device only and remove all other activated devices – This will forcefully log you out of all other BBMe installs except the one you are currently setting up.

Once you’re all set up, you’ll get a new PIN and have to re-invite any contacts you wish to add and while you’ll no longer have access to BBM Channels, purchased Stickers, and the Discover Tab, you’ll still have access to group chats, voice calls, video calls, as well as the edit, retract and expiring message options. You’ll still also be able to see when messages are received and read, send voice notes, files, and share your location using Glymspe while making use of end-to-end encryption.
