About GitHub Mobile

GitHub Mobile allows people to triage, collaborate, and manage work on your GitHub Enterprise Server instance from a mobile device after successful authentication. GitHub Mobile is available as an Android and iOS app. For more information, see "GitHub Mobile."

You can allow or disallow people from using GitHub Mobile to authenticate to your GitHub Enterprise Server instance and access your instance's data. By default, GitHub Mobile is not enabled for people who use your GitHub Enterprise Server instance. To allow connection to your instance with GitHub Mobile, you must enable the feature for your instance.

Note: If you upgrade to GitHub Enterprise Server 3.4.0 or later and have not previously disabled or enabled GitHub Mobile, GitHub Mobile will be enabled by default. If you previously disabled or enabled GitHub Mobile for your instance, your preference will be preserved upon upgrade. For more information about upgrading your instance, see "Upgrading GitHub Enterprise Server."
