1. A method comprising:
based on receiving, by a computing device, an indication to initiate roaming of a session of a mobile workspace of a user that is launched on a first user device, selecting a second user device from among one or more trusted user devices based on a proximity of the second user device to the first user device, wherein
the indication to initiate session roaming is determined based on a policy rule that identifies the first user device as a master device and designates the one or more trusted user devices as a slave device of the first user device, and based on a determination that a distance between the first user device and at least one slave device is less than a predetermined threshold; and
launching the session as a user authenticated session on the second user device.
