  2. On the installer, Swif asks the device owner to enter their work email, then it can use this information to automatically assign enrolled devices. If the email is invalid, no assignment will happen.

  3. If you have Find My enabled, please turn it off before continuing. This is to ensure the computer Find My is managed and the admin can disable Find My if necessary to prevent activation locked.
