The Zscaler App (Z App) is an application installed on your device to ensure that your internet traffic and access to your organization's internal apps are secure and in compliance with your organization’s policies, even when you're off your corporate network.
Z App is designed to provide a seamless user experience. It automatically recognizes when you are connected to a trusted network (for example, your corporate office network) and depending on your organization's configuration, can disable its internet security service and ZPA accordingly. It can also recognize when you connect to Wi-Fi hotspots (for example, at airports, hotels, and cafés) where you must pay or accept a use policy before connecting. The app disables its services for a period of time and re-enables itself after you've had a chance to complete the steps necessary to connect.
Once you log in with your user ID and complete a one-step device enrollment process, you can begin safely connecting to the web and to your organization's internal applications and services with Z App.
