    Hi, I'm unable to find 'work profile' option on the device. I tried reset app preference and other methods suggested by OnePlus tech support. Still I don't see any option to enable work profile, could anyone help me with this?

    I've attached the screenshot for the key work search on settings.

    Hi there, please long press on home screen, go to settings you will find the work profile option.

    Hope this helps.

    Hello, thank you for quick response!
    Unfortunately, I don't see any option for work profile here too

    Work profile is usually created by the MDM app which your company uses.

    Have you already created the work profile partition through the company app and then you can see two profiles.

    I wasn't using any proprietary MDM apps but I was able to use work profile and personal profile as shown in the attached image. When I deregistered my previous company email all the company data along with this work profile has got deleted. Now I could see only person profile and I don't see any toggle button to re-enable the work profile.

    No. We used to have work profile as phone settings options earlier which will help us to enable and disable work related apps only when the profile is activated or deactivated respectively. It was handy and trustworthy and helps to have pure work life balance. Now the option seems to be changed to work life balance which allows users to control only notification. But earlier when the work profile is disabled, your work related apps will go into grey and cannot be opened at all. You can use work related apps only when you enable work profile.

    Yes. This was there earlier. And gives us feel that work related apps can be disabled in personal time when work profile is disabled. It helps to completely get rid of use of work apps when personal profile is on and so vice-versa.

    This is not working as intended. I don't know the purpose of aging work account. When we can already have work related applications. I need to have app control like enabling/disabling when a profile is selected. When I select personal it would disable work apps when I select work profile it should disable personal apps.

    That is still there in the OnePlus Launcher. You just have to swipe left to access the work profile apps. You can disable the drawer there.

    What is your exact question? You asked about enabling and disabling the work apps. Which you can do in the Launcher, as well as with the work profile QS tile.

    Read the question properly before answering. You can be genius. I don't doubt but. Help when you are serious. I never asked for enabling work apps.. I'm not here for time pass or showoff

    This is a user forum. Be courteous to the one who is trying to help and stop being rude.
    Since you are unable to explain clearly what you want, the onus is on you to make yourself clear. Not the other way around.

    Now, explain exactly what you want. Because I read through your post three times and I'm still not able to understand what exactly you want.

    Why is someone with a 7T asking questions on a 5/5T forum?
