WElcoME to BBM EntErprisEWith BBM Enterprise, you can chat and share in real time with your coworkers, friends, and family. BBM Enterprise adds an extra layer of encryption to the existing BBM security model between devices.

When your organization buys BBM Enterprise subscriptions, a designated administrator receives an email invitation to sign in as an administrator. The email contains a link to your organization’s enterprise administrator console, where you can sign in with an existing BlackBerry ID or create a new BlackBerry ID.

You must sign in to your enterprise administrator console within 24 hours of receiving the email invitation. If the invitation expires, refer to your welcome packet for instructions.

BBM Protected is now BBM EnterpriseTo continue protecting your company’s BBM chats with enhanced security and encryption, users in your company must switch to the BBM Enterprise app.

If you’re a current BBM Protected administrator, switching to the BBM Enterprise app is easy: a user in your company can download the BBM Enterprise app and sign in using their existing BlackBerry ID. All their BBM contacts are added in BBM Enterprise automatically.
