Supporting Azure Active Directory shared device mode (preview) for Power BI Mobile apps

Shared devices are company-owned devices that are shared between employees, often frontline workers, across tasks, shifts, or locations. Most mobile apps, however, are designed for single users, and optimize their experience for use by a single user, with single sign on (SSO) across applications and keeping users signed in on their device. This behavior isn’t suitable for devices that are shared by multiple users. In the case of shared devices, employees expect to pick a device from the pool, “make it theirs” for the duration of their shift, and then to be able, at the end of their shift, to sign out from the device globally and have all their personal and company information removed so they can return the device to the pool. This is exactly what Azure AD’s shared device mode enables.
