Samsung KNOX is a new Android-based solution specifically designed to enhance security of the current open source Android platform. When we root our phones we totally gain full access to our devices so its understandable if Samsung doesn’t want you to remove its stock apps which can be bloat wares when they start becoming a nuisance. There are many reasons as to why Samsung would want this, warranty concerns and claims for one and the obvious profit they make when you use additional services attached to the Samsung name. Well, should you choose to take full control of your Samsung device, here’s how to go about it;

 

FOR ROOTED DEVICES:

  • Download and install Titanium Backup  application on your Samsung device. Launch the app and you’ll see options to disable the Knox Store, Knox notification manager, Knox KLMS Agent, sec.enterprise.knox.attestation and com.sec.knox.eventsmanager.
  • Download and install Knox disabler application and click on the disable tab (needs root access granted)
  • Download Terminal Emulator on your device and type in the following commands “Su” and “pm disable com.sec.knox.seandroid”

NON ROOTED DEEVICES:

  • Search for the Knox app on your device and head to the Knox setting
  • Once there, simply uninstall Knox. While doing this you’ll be asked to backup your Knox data which is saved during the uninstall process in your devices Knox folder. Only clause of this is that it is not a permanent solution to removing Knox but it’ll just do on a temporary basis. So should you decide to root your device for a thorough uninstall of knox
