When installing using the APK file Unknown Sources must be enabled, the client needs to be installed manually after download and credentials need to be re-entered to the client after installation (they are already validated once in a browser before the download link is shown on the enrollment page). Please note that installing apps from unknown sources may put your phone and data and risk and should only be allowed when required and you trust the source.

For example on Samsung devices, you can access the required settings by going to Settings > Apps > Special access (found from the right corner underneath the menu icon) > Install unknown apps and switch the Samsung Internet on (to the right) as seen below.
